The new Council for Fradley and Streethay first met in June 2009. The expansion of both major villages highlighted the needs of hundreds of new residents and is bringing forward new ideas for the improvement to the appearance of the area.
Parish Councils are often described as the 'most approachable' layer of Local Government. Our Parish Councillors live in and are part of the community and are unpaid. They are often the first point of call with local issues.
This website and our newsletter The Village Link are designed to keep you up to date with our activities.
The council continues its commitment to our three play areas; the council maintains Streethay, Hay End Lane and Worthington Road. These were funded from 'Section 106' funds negotiated by Lichfield District Council as a result of local development in the parish.
The Parish Council will always work to ensure such funds are spent locally after consultation. Streethay has benefited from section 106 funds; these have been used to improve the Play Park with the new sand pit, fencing and Kissing Gate.
The Council provides Grants to run the Summer Play Schemes in the Parish, which are organised by the District Council, many local youngsters benefit from the play activities during the holidays.
Council organised and hosted the Olympic Torch Relay Community Day which took place in Streethay Play Area on 30 June 2012. All supporting organisations and residents enjoyed a very successful event. Thanks go to:
As a result of the fun day charitable contributions were raised for the Midlands Air Ambulance, First Responders, the 7th scouts and the Lichfield Soroptomists
The council is also responsible for several areas of green open spaces in the parish as well as shrubs all maintained by our contractor (Lichfield District Council) on a regular basis. Recent works to such areas includes:
