Your Council

The parish council consists of seven councillors who are elected every four years.

The council employs a part-time Clerk who is also the Responsible Financial Officer and provides support and advice to the council.

The council ordinarily meet every second month (January, March, May, July, September and November), with additional meetings as required and the meetings are held at St Marks Church. The public are welcome and encouraged to attend all meetings and are allowed to speak to the council for twenty minutes at the start of the meeting.

Agendas are posted on this website and on the parish notice board, located in the community garden opposite the bus stop, at least 3 working days prior to the meeting. Minutes are posted on this website as an unapproved draft within one month of the meeting taking place and they are approved as as a true record and signed by the Chair at the following meeting.

We welcome the views of residents on local issues. You can contact the parish council via the parish clerk by email or on 07429 264938. You can also discuss issues with your parish councillors directly.

What does the parish council do?
