Community governance review
Longdon is situated midway between Lichfield and Rugeley. Key settlements include Longdon Green, Longdon (Brook End), Upper Longdon and Gentleshaw.
The Parish Council has previously passed a resolution requesting that the District Council consider reducing the size of the Parish Council from 11 Members to 9 Members.
That Longdon Parish Council be reduced from 11 councillors to 9 councillors.
It is considered a smaller council is appropriate given the population of the parish and will:
- address difficulties experienced when filling vacancies
- make it easier to achieve a quorum
As such the recommendation will contribute towards effective and convienient local governance.
