West Hunsbury Parish Council
The Parish Council
The Parish Council is the first tier of local government and exists to represent the interests of the parish. It is the job of the Parish Council to represent the interests of the whole community. Parish Councillors have a responsibility to be well informed about diverse local views.
There are eight seats on West Hunsbury Parish Council and Councillors are elected every four years (next election May 2019). The position is purely voluntary and attracts no payment. There are currently two vacancies on the Parish Council. Please contact us if you would like to put yourself forward. One or probably both of the positions will be filled by co-option onto the Council. This means that there will not be an election.

If you have any questions that you would like answered, views that you would like to share with the council or spot a problem that needs reporting in the Parish please contact the Clerk in the first instance.
