A Parish Council is the first tier of local government and provide communities with a democratic voice and a structure for taking community action. The work of Laxton Parish Council falls into three main areas:
- representing your local community
- delivering services to meet local needs
- striving to improve quality of life in the parish
Laxton Parish Council has a small budget and some limited powers to provide services to meet local needs and improve community wellbeing. We work underneath the “principal authority” which is East Riding of Yorkshire Council and are a consultee on things like planning permissions.
