What We Do
The Parish Council is the tier of Local Government closest to the people and is a non-political body. It is at the 'grass roots' and as such is in the best position to understand and represent the views of the local community. Parish Councillors are elected to serve for a term of 4 years and the next Parish Council Elections will be held in 2020. At the moment, (January 2020) the Parish Council has one vacancy for a Parish Councillor and welcomes applications to fill this vacancy from enthusiatic volunteers able to give their time. There are also opportunites for people to volunteer and join Working Groups to help the Council deliver its plans. If you are interested, please contact the Parish Clerk or the Chair of the Parish Council.
Parish Council meetings are usually held on the first Wednesday of each month at 7.30 pm in the Village Hall (the meeting room at the back of Boarhunt Social Club) Trampers Lane, North Boarhunt, PO17 6DD in order to discuss issues affecting the Parish and its residents. An Open Forum session is always included to allow questions, comments and contributions from the general public and the Press are most welcome to attend.
Please note that any correspondence received by the Clerk, unless stipulated private and confidential, will be disseminated to all serving Parish Councillors and the contents, including the author's name, may be discussed openly in a public meeting.
