Introducing your Parish Council

The Parish Council is the third tier of local government, after the Borough Council and the County Council, but it is a non-political body. It is at the grassroots and as such is in the best position to listen and respond to the views of the local community.

Parish Council meetings take place at 7pm in the Village Centre on the first Monday of every month, except where they clash with public or other holidays. All residents are welcome and entitled to attend – there is a short time at the start of each meeting given over to public questions.

We’d encourage you to share with us your thoughts, concerns and ideas so we can better represent all parts of our village community. On the left is a link to some of the latest discussions and planning applications, and below you’ll find contact details for getting in touch.
