I'm interested to know if anyone has any experience of 2 individual parishes under the umbrella of one PC.
My PC consists of 6 Councillors...3 from each Parish. In 2019 one Parish held an election the other didn't. There is one precept. On looking at Gov.uk both Parishes are shown with a 50/50 split of the precept.
Q) Should this set up be addressed to bring both parishes 'together'?
Q) There are issues surrounding monies being spent with one parish wanting to spend for their parish and the other showing defiance as they want to keep the precept low.
Q) Historically one member from a parish is Chairman for one year and the other parish has a member for vice chair. This is starting to get problematic as not all members want to step up. Currently one parish has members for Chairman and vice chair and is causing friction and taking advantage of the situation.
