Serving Rainhill Community
Rainhill Parish Council
Rainhill Parish Council was established in 1894 and is one of the
longest established Parish Councils in the country. The Council
is the first tier of local government. The Council consists of
14 voluntary Councillors who are elected for a four year term of
office to serve and administer for the needs of the residents of
Rainhill. The Parish Councillors determine and set policy to
cater for the social, cultural, welfare and environmental needs
of Rainhill residents and employ a part time Clerk to the Council
to implement policy decisions.
The Parish Council is financed by raising a
precept or levy on all residential properties in Rainhill, this
precept providing £53,800 for 2015/16. Some of the money
raised is used to finance the large and well used village hall
which was built in 1966, with it being refurbished and enlarged in
2001. The hall is administered by a voluntary committee.
