Parish Council

Latest from your Parish Council

The Parish Council covers Longdown and the surrounding areas.  There are eleven members of the Council, including the Chairman and the Vice Chairman. Our Chair is Charles Eden  and the Vice Chair is Louise Brind. A full list of Council Members, their contact details and the Committees they sit on is available here.

Council Members are elected every four years, at the same time as the District Council elections take place. If a Councillor resigns during their term of office, the Parish Council has a statutory duty to advertise the vacancy and to notify the relevant officer at the District Council that this has been done. Unless the required number of parishioners request an election, the Parish Council is then free to co-opt someone to fill the vacancy until the next election.

We employ a clerk to run the administration of the Council. Our current clerk is Jim Roberts. The Council can be contacted via the Clerk on 07768 457590 / 01392 202692 or preferably by email [email protected].
