What does the Parish Council do?

 

Wythall Parish Council is committed to:

Providing relevant and cost effective local sevices to the residents of
Wythall.

Preserving the semi-rural identity of Wythall and the green belt within
it.

Developing the economic viabiltiy of the village whilst maintaining its
semi-rural personality.

Helping the local community to develop facilities to meet local needs.

 

Wythall Parish Council has little power but a reasonable amount of influence
an example of this is Planning Applications.  Every application is seen by the
Planning Committee for review and their comments are sent back to Bromsgrove
District Council who will then review the Parish Councils comments.

 

The Parish Council is directly responsible for the following services to the
village:

The Allotments in Packhorse Lane (managed by the Allotments Association).

Bus Shelters

Some Street Lighting

Wythall Cemetery

The War Memorial

Mowing some of the grass verges under contract to Worcestershire County
Council and Bromsgrove District Council

 

The Parish Council also has the services of a lengthsman (funded by Worcestershire County Council) and the Bromsgrove District Council Place Team, who both help to keep the Parish looking tidy.

 

The Parish Council also supports the Community in the form of grants to local
groups. In the 2015/16 Financial Year Grants have been made to Wythall Village Hall, Wythall Tennis Club, Wythall Community Association, Wythall Community Choir, Wythall Together, and Woodrush Youth Centre.
