Ravenfield Parish Council Community Plan
Ravenfield Parish Council is in the process of updating our Community Plan. As part of this review, we are seeking Residents views on their priority areas within the Parish.
By answering this short questionnaire your views and ideas will inform and help the Parish Council to set priorities that are important to you and your family over the next few years.
Ideally, we would like everyone in your family to fill in the questionnaire, so please encourage everyone in your household to either go online to complete this or request extra copies from the Parish Council.
Please complete the survey by Friday 4 November

The Council is a local authority. It is a statutory, corporate body and therefore does not have a constitution. For governance purposes it has its own standing orders and financial regulations together with various policies and procedures. The Council serves the community,makes decisions for the benefit of the community, represents the community on other bodies and acts as a pressure group.
The Council is the sole trustee of the Ravenfield Youth Charity and custodial trustee of other local (parochial) charities.
The Council has seven members, its first meeting was held in August 1912 and it has to comply with local government legislation.
