Hallow Parish Council
Parish councils are statutory bodies. Members are elected for a term of four years and councils are funded principally by an annual precept. Income and expenditure for the next financial year are calculated in the form of estimates. The net amount (the precept) is added to council tax, collected by the county, borough or district council (principal authorities) and paid to parishes in two six-monthly installments.
Parish and town councils can apply for other funding such as grants and funding awards, but they do not receive funds direct from central government, as principal authorities do.
Climate Change: What you can do to help?
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has presented a sobering report on climate change – giving us a mere 12 years to avoid its worst effects. We look at what can you do to reduce emissions.

The land behind Hallow Scout Hut - Possible creation of a Wildlife Area
Hallow Parish Council is considering the possibility of developing the land to the north of the Scout Hut and the Parish Hall Car Park, which is owned by the Parish Council, into a nature reserve (or similar) by planting trees, landscaping the field, and perhaps adding a pond and wild flowers etc. in order to produce a pleasant area to walk, or just sit and enjoy.
The parish Council would particularly like to elicit the help of someone with skills in the design and creation of this type of area who would be willing to develop some ideas.
If would like to help with investigating this idea further, or you have some ideas, you are invited to contact Parish Council at firstname.lastname@example.org. or contact any Parish Councillor. Contact details for all Parish Councilors can be found on this site or the Parish Notice Board in Moseley Road.
