ROLE OF THE PARISH COUNCIL

The Parish HallThe role of the parish council is to represent the interests of the residents of Tormarton and West Littleton on a whole range of local matters including planning, highways, safety, housing, rights of way and street care. 

Tormarton Parish Council normally meets on the 2nd Monday of each month, except during January and August, when there are no meetings. The meetings, which are open to the public, are held in the Committee Room in the Parish Hall and the agendas are posted on village notice boards and the website at least 3 days beforehand. 

In order to carry out its responsibilities, the parish council raises money through a precept which is collected by South Gloucestershire Council with the council tax. Details of how this money is spent can be obtained from the Parish Clerk.

NOTES FROM THE CHAIRMAN 

Tormarton Park & Share: Tormarton Parish Councillors and Sue Hope, our South Glos District
Councillor, met Emma Blackham, Head of Strategic Transport for SGC, on 20th September to obtain
an update on what SGC had done with respect to the proposed Tormarton Park & Share scheme. The
information provided showed that several feasibility and design studies had been carried out by SGC
during the past two years. This confirmed that the land south of the M4 at Tormarton is a viable
proposition for a Park & Share site and that further work will need to be done to identify more
precisely the demand for this facility. In addition, part of the land in question is owned by SGC and
part is owned by Highways England (HE) and one area of the land owned by SGC is currently
occupied by a long term tenant. Further discussions need to take place between SGC and HE to
identify the best option for the Park & Share site. Further news on this project is expected early in
2017.
