Welcome to the Probus Parish Council website

Probus Parish Council

This is the official Website of Probus Parish Council which has been designed and constructed to provide what we hope will be a valuable resource of information to all residents of the village.

A vehicle to find out more about what is happening within the Council and the wider Probus community.

We wish for the site to be proactive as possible and to be a two-way channel of advice assistance and information between its residents and the Parish Council.

Bullying & Harassment Statement

Your parish council treats everyone with courtesy and respect and asks for the same in return.

We ask that you treat your councillors and council staff courteously without violence, abuse or harassment. Parish councillors and council staff have the right to carry out their civic duties and work without fear of being attacked or abused.

Any behaviour whether that be verbal, physical or in writing, which causes either councillors or council staff to feel uncomfortable, embarrassed, or threatened, is totally unacceptable. The zero-tolerance policy includes abuse, aggression or threats made in person, over the telephone or in written communication, including on social media.

The parish council considers threatening behaviour to be:

· Attempted or actual aggressive, or physical actions made towards any councillor or member of staff.

· The use of aggressive, or abusive language, (including raising of the voice, swearing, shouting or in writing) which threatens or intimidates councillors or council staff
