As detailed here the
powers and duties of the Parish Council are limited. Feckenham Parish Council
does, however, provide some services. If there is an issue with these
services please contact the Clerk.
Services Provided directly
by the Parish Council
Lengthsman who provides limited
works on the highways in the parish.
Grit Bins; some
are provided by WCC, but most are provided by FPC. In either case, contact the Clerk if the bins
are low on grit.
Planning decisions are the
domain of Redditch Borough Council (RBC), the local planning authority. However,
as a consultee, the Parish Council may
comment on planning applications within the parish. If parishioners
would like to comment on planning applications they are encouraged to respond
directly to Redditch Borough Council http://access.redditchbc.gov.uk/online-applications/
Feckenham Parish Council encourages parishioners to bring forward matters
related to services provided by either Redditch Borough Council or
Worcestershire County Council. However, the more complaints received by either
authority, the more likely the issue will be speedily resolved.
When filing a complaint to an authority (including the police) it is best to
note the reference number.
Issues such as hedges, pot holes, blocked drains/gulleys etc. should be
reported to firstname.lastname@example.org or by
phone: Mon – Fri 8am to 8pm, Sat 9am to 5pm 01905 722233

I have developed a rural crime prevention resources, downloads and contacts link website which I would like to introduce to you.
The link to the website is as follows; http://worcestershireruralwatch.co.uk/
Also associated to it is a facebook page more localised to North Worcestershire for dynamic news, events and crime alerts; https://www.facebook.com/North-Worcestershire-Rural-Watch-1649896241929578/
This is also visible from the website.
I would like to invite you to circulate this to your rural constituents for their information I have separately addressed Rural Parish Councils and stated that I welcome any invitations to address your Parish Councils on these, on rural and business crime generally and indeed to support any events or initiatives to address rural crime. Perhaps if you have a newsletter or website you could also feature these two community facilities there also?
I would also encourage feedback and in particular suggestions or request for additional content that may be useful.
Although an increasing number of people have access to the internet and to facebook I appreciate that not everyone has and I would re-assure you that this electronic facility is not designed to solely replace face to face contact and support with our rural communities.
