Report It!

As detailed here the powers and duties of the Parish Council are limited. Feckenham Parish Council does, however, provide some services.  If there is an issue with these services please contact the Clerk.

Services Provided directly by the Parish Council

Lengthsman who provides limited works on the highways in the parish.

Grit Bins; some are provided by WCC, but most are provided by FPC.  In either case, contact the Clerk if the bins are low on grit. 

Planning decisions are the domain of Redditch Borough Council (RBC), the local planning authority.  However, as a consultee, the Parish Council may comment on planning applications within the parish.  If parishioners would like to comment on planning applications they are encouraged to respond directly to Redditch Borough Council

Feckenham Parish Council encourages parishioners to bring forward matters related to services provided by either Redditch Borough Council or Worcestershire County Council. However, the more complaints received by either authority, the more likely the issue will be speedily resolved.   When filing a complaint to an authority (including the police) it is best to note the reference number.

Rural & Business Crime Co-ordinator

I am the Police and Crime Commissioner funded rural crime co-ordinator for North Worcestershire Community Safety Partnership. Primarily this email is relevant to those of you who have rural communities among your constituents however I feel it is worth you all being made aware of the following.


I have developed a rural crime prevention resources, downloads and contacts link website which I would like to introduce to you.


The link to the website is as follows;


Also associated to it is a facebook page more localised to North Worcestershire for dynamic news, events and crime alerts;


This is also visible from the website.


I would like to invite you to circulate this to your rural constituents for their information I have separately addressed Rural Parish Councils and stated that I welcome any invitations to address your Parish Councils on these, on rural and business crime generally and indeed to support any events or initiatives to address rural crime. Perhaps if you have a newsletter or website you could also feature these two community facilities there also?


I would also encourage feedback and in particular suggestions or request for additional content that may be useful.


Although an increasing number of people have access to the internet and to facebook I appreciate that not everyone has and I would re-assure you that this electronic facility is not designed to solely replace face to face contact and support with our rural communities.


Many thanks
