Middleton Parish Council
Middleton Parish Council seeks to be fully transparent in all its activities so that Parishioners can scrutinise every aspect of it’s activities. The parish Council operates to provide a service to the Parish as a whole as well as interfacing into Warwickshire County Council, North Warwickshire borough Council, Tame Valley Wetlands, Warwickshire Association of Local Councils, GDPR, Warwickshire Police Force, HS2 our Contractors and many other organisations that have an impact on our community. Our moto is Gesta non verba loosely translated means Deeds not words. We fully appreciate that not all our undertakings will result in unanimous approval, however we are always open to suggestions and ideas on how to improve our community and it’s facilities. As a Council we are bound by a legal framework which dictates what we can and cannot do. These are encompassed into our Standing orders, Financial Governance regulations and our Contract governance regulations and the many Local Government acts that impact our governance.
“Our aim is to be the most innovative and action orientated Parish Council in North Warwickshire, representing the best interests of Middleton in all matters”.
