Kinlet Parish Council Action Plan

Kinlet Parish Council constantly strives to work on behalf of parishioners on the issues that matter to the village. 

We are always keen to receive ideas and suggestions from parishioners on particular areas of interest or concern and where it is felt the council may assist.

Listed below is our current schedule of activity; this will be regularly reviewed and updated as projects finish and priorities change.

The Council will:-

  1. Maintain strict controls over expenditure to ensure that parishioners get value for their Council Tax payments.
  2. Encourage members of the public to attend Council meetings and bring issues of concern to the attention of Councillors.
  3. Monitor and respond to all planning applications received from Shropshire Council.
  4. Continue to liaise with and put pressure on Shropshire Council with regard to road safety issues highlighted by residents and members of the Parish Council.
