Parish Councils are the level of democratically elected local government closest to the local community.
The duties they have are to provide allotments if there is a demand and to receive the accounts of parochial charities.
They have many other powers which they may use and this will often depend upon the size of the parish (less than 100 to over 30,000) and upon how pro-active the council is.
In Burwell we :
The Parish also works with East Cambridgeshire District Council (ECDC) whose responsibilities include planning, environmental health, economic and community development, housing, licensing, tourism, strategic development, refuse collection and recycling. Cambridgeshire County Council also has considerable contact with the Parish and their responsibilities include education, highways, transport, refuse disposal, libraries, social services and trading standards.
