SLCC

The Society of Local Council Clerks is the professional body for local council clerks. Its membership is steadily growing and now represents clerks to over 4200 council in England and Wales. 

Many councils realise the benefits of having a clerk who is properly trained, fully briefed on the issues of the day and can get fast accurate advice to problems that they may face. In fact, over 90% of members' councils willingly pay for their clerks' subscriptions to the Society as encouraged by the Local Government Act. 

The Society of Local Council Clerks is developing fast and is increasingly recognised as the body which represents and promotes 'best practice' in the sector. 

Membership is open to all full time, part time and deputy Clerks of town, parish or community councils and parish meetings in England and Wales.

The South Worcestershire Development Plan and Neighbourhood Plans

More than 30 parish and town councils in South Worcestershire have either completed a neighbourhood plan or have one in preparation. But it is not yet clear how much influence these will have on the new South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP2), now being prepared by a Joint Planning Team from Worcester City Council and Wychavon and Malvern Hills District Councils. A major aim of the SWDP2, as with its predecessor, is to allocate sites for new dwellings to meet the targets for ‘housing need’ determined by central Government. It is therefore important that parish and town councils play a major part in shaping the SWDP2 to protect the character of our communities and to ensure that any new housing meets the needs of local people.

Martley Parish Council would like to hear from other parish and town councils in South Worcestershire who either have a neighbourhood plan or are developing one. In particular, we would like to call a meeting to discuss a common approach to the Joint Planning Team which is developing the SWDP2. Please contact Michelle Alexander, Parish Clerk at clerk@martley-pc.org.uk.
