We recognise the significant role that Parish Councils have. The Parish Charter has been developed in partnership with Parish Councils and represents a mutual agreement to improve joint working between the council and Parish Councils so that services are delivered more efficiently and meet the needs of the local community.
The rural areas and villages of Peterborough are valued as an important asset now and for the future. They have strong independent local identities and sense of heritage and belonging.
A strong rural voice is vital to ensure that the challenges and opportunities facing rural areas are managed in a way that both supports and empowers rural communities and the people who live and work in them.
