Casual vacancy for a councillor

Casual vacancy October 2020. There was no call for an election to fill the vacancy to replace Marina Fontenla so the council will co-opt a member.

If you would like to be considered for co-option please email clerk@randwickandwestrip-pc.gov.uk by December 9thth at the latest with a brief personal statement explaining what experience and skills you would bring to the council and you will be invited to speak at the council meeting on December 17th.

To qualify your name must appear on the current electoral register – or you should have lived in or within three miles of the parish during the whole of the last twelve months – or your only place of work during the whole of the last twelve months was in the parish.

The Parish Council normally meets once a month. The new Councillor will hold office until the next local elections in May 2021.

Elections May 2020

The Local Government elections that were due to take place on Thursday 7 May 2020 have been postponed for one year as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. 

Annual Audit

The Audit for 2019/20 has been completed.

Under the 2014 Local audit and Accountability Act each year the parish council prepares the Annual Governance and Accountability Return.

The council’s accounts have been audited. Since neither the council’s annual income nor the annual expenditure exceed £25,000 the council has declared itself exempt from external audit. Accounts and audit papers are available on the page “Accounts and Audits”.

Environmental Plan for the Parish

In order to help preserve Randwick & Westrip for the future the Parish Council is going to create an environmental plan of the parish. This is to include sites of special interest of varying types, both natural and man-made. Examples could include buildings of note, areas where there are valued wild plants or insects, or areas created by community projects etc.

If you are aware of anything which you believe should be included please contact us either by emailing me at cllr.debbi.smith@randwickandwestrip-pc.gov.uk or by coming along to a council meeting.
