Parish Council

What is the Parish Council?

A Parish Council is the 1st tier of local government. Councillors (7) are elected democratically every 4 years to represent their community. Councillors are not volunteers and the Council is not a club, charity or society. They are consulted on planning applications and communicate directly with other infrastructure and community bodies including Folkestone and Hythe District Council, Kent Highways, Kent Police and Kent Fire and Rescue Service. See minutes of meetings for more detail of current activities and representations.
