Staplehurst Parish Council
MONDAY 03 SEPTEMBER 2018: PLANNING COMMITTEE at 19:00, FOLLOWED BY FULL COUNCIL - THE AGENDAS ARE AVAILABLE HERE.
Staplehurst Parish Council is the first tier of local government, with 15 places for Councillors. We currently have 14 Councillors, nine elected in 2015 and five co-opted following the elections. The next Parish Council elections are due to be held in May 2019.
The Parish Council represents the local community, delivers services to meet local needs and aspires to improve quality of life and community well-being. However, parish councils are limited in what they are able to do, which is set out within legislation.
Staplehurst Parish Council meets on a regular basis. From August 2018 meetings take place every three weeks. The next meeting date is shown at the top of this article. Please see the Parish Council Meetings page of this website for subsequent dates. A meeting evening starts with the Council's Planning Committee at 7.00pm, followed by the Full Council meeting. Meetings are open to the public and press, except on very rare occasions when an item may be designated as confidential.
