Staplehurst Parish Council
Staplehurst Parish Council is the first tier of local government and was first elected in 1894, with 15 places for Councillors.
Since 1894, we have had 18 Chairmen and 10 Parish Clerks. We currently have 11 Councillors, and 4 vacancies, this term of office runs until May 2023.
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 every three weeks. The next meeting dates are below. Please see the Parish Council Meetings page of this website for subsequent dates. Meetings are open to the public and press, except on very rare occasions when an item may be designated as confidential.
