The Council


The Council

The Parish Council consists of eight councillors who are elected every four years.

The public are welcome and encouraged to attend all meetings and are allowed to speak to the council for fifteen minutes at the start of the meeting.

Agendas are posted on this website and on the two parish notice boards, both of which are located on Top Road, one opposite Main Street and the other on the junction with Low Road. The agenda is issued at least 3 working days prior to the meeting.

Minutes are posted on this website too.

We welcome the views of residents on local issues. Contact the parish council.
