The Parish Council exists to serve and support the community of Heptonstall Parish, specifically :

  • To protect and conserve what is of merit in the heritage of the Parish, whether this be the green or the built environment,objects or features within them, or organisations, activities and facilities operating within the Parish.
  • To promote and support new developments in the Parish which will contribute to the wellbeing of the Community whilst not detracting from that which is worth preserving.
  • To prevent new developments which will impact adversely on the heritage of the Parish, or on the wellbeing of the Community.
  • To consult members of the Community on all matters which potentially may have a major impact on the Community before arriving at a decision on action.
  • To maintain awareness of the needs and wants of parishioners so that these can inform the prosecution of the Council’s aims.
  • To keep parishioners informed of Council business in hand and of decisions made.
  • To respond courteously and constructively to parishioners’ complaints and concerns of whatever nature and, where justified, to endeavour to the best of the Council’s abilities to bring about a fair and reasonable outcome to these.
  • To secure the involvement and support of Ward Councillors – and through them the Principal Local Authority – in seeking to achieve the Council’s aims.
  • To establish and maintain links with, and where required gain the involvement and support of, other people and bodies in achieving the Council’s aims eg the local MP, other Parish & Town Councils, NALC, National Trust, Rambler’s Association, etc.
