Meet your Parish Clerk

The Clerk to the Council is the Proper Officer of the Council and as such is under a statutory duty to carry out all the functions incuding  to serve or issue all the notifications required by law of a local Authority’s Proper Officer, to advise and assist the Council in the formation of policies to be followed in respect of the Parish Councils activities producing information required for making effective decisions and to implement constructively all decisions made.

The Clerk is responsible for ensuring that the instructions of the Council in connection with its function as a Local Authority are carried out.

The Clerk is also the Responsible Financial Officer for Buxhall and therefore is responsible for all financial records of the Council and the careful administration of its finances.

The Council is responsible for all decisions and must be confident the Clerk acts at all  times in an independent, professional and objective matter. 

The Clerk takes instructions from the Council as a body not from any individual Councillor.
