The Parish Council is elected every 4 years, and can fill casual vacancies by co-option.   We like to have members of the Council from all parts of the parish. We are non political, seeking only what we consider is best for the parish and its residents.

We are consulted on planning applications in the parish, but we do not make the decision and the planning authority may make a decision with which we disagree. You can see planning for any location and also tree preservation orders using the links below.

Members of the Council are all unpaid.
