What is a Parish Council?

The Council is the lowest tier of local government but is at the grassroots of the community. The Council normally consists of 11 voluntary Councillors (currently there are vacancies) who are elected for a four-year term of office to serve and administer to the needs of the residents of Baughurst Parish.  In the event of mid-term vacancy occurring a new member is elected or co-opted until the next full election. The Parish Councillors determine and set policy to cater for the social, cultural, welfare and environmental needs of our residents and employ a part-time Clerk to the Council to implement policy decisions.

All Councillors adhere to the Parish Council Code of Conduct and complete a Register of Interests. The Councillors have formed into sub-councils to concentrate on in-depth concerns in the local community. The committees are listed here.

  • General Purposes
  • Footpaths
  • Playing Fields and Open Spaces 

Interested in becoming a Parish Councillor?

Why not attend as a member of the public for a few meetings and if this encourages you to get involved, perhaps speak with an existing Councillor or the Parish Council Clerk who can provide more information about Parish Council elections and mid-term vacancies?
