How Are We Funded?

We are funded principally through the Precept, an amount demanded by the Parish Council from East Staffordshire Borough Council in January of each year for the next financial year.  East Staffordshire Borough Council collects this money through the Council Tax.

How Do We Work?

Our Parish Council has 11 members, who are normally elected for a four year term of office.  10 members from Stretton and 1 member from Stretton South East.  

We employ a Parish Clerk who is also the Responsible Financial Officer and Proper Officer and thus acts as Secretary, advisor and treasurer to the Council; a Booking Clerk/Caretaker for the Priory Centre and Parish Changing Rooms and Maintenance Contractors who look after the Parish amenity areas.

The Parish Council delegates defined responsibilities to a number of Committees which are made up of Councillors and co-opted members .
