Parish Administrator (Lesley Hough)
The Parish Administrator is the Proper Officer and Responsible Financial Officer. Her statutory duty is to carry out all the functions to ensure the Parish Council fulfils its legal obligations required by law and that the instructions of the Parish Council, in connection with its functions as a Local Authority, are carried out.
The Parish Administrator also advises the Parish Council on, and assists in the formation of, overall policies to be followed in respect of the Authority’s activities and in particular produces all the information required for making effective decisions and the constructive implementation of them.
The Parish Administrator is accountable to the Parish Council for the effective management of all its resources and reports to them as and when required.
The role is equivalent to that of a Chief Executive.
