Sutton Parish Council

The next meeting of the Parish Counil will be held in the village hall on Thursday 22nd July at 7pm. Thereafter meetings will continue to be held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7pm starting from 10th August 2021.

Sutton Parish Council exists to represent the interests of the local community, to maintain and improve quality of life for local residents, and to deliver services to meet local needs. The Parish Council is responsible for a vast number of facilities and services across Sutton, and the work of the Council is far more involved than many realise.

Parish Council meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm in the village hall. All members of the community are welcome, public speaking is permitted under the agenda item ‘Public Forum’.

Councillors and Clerk

Although elected by public vote or co-opted onto the Council (voted onto the Parish Council by the Council itself), members of the Parish Council are volunteers, who are not paid for the extensive work they undertake on behalf of the local community. However, all Council members must adhere to a Code of Conduct and are expected to uphold high standards as they carry out their duties.

To ensure the Parish Council as a whole fulfils its legal obligations and follows proper procedures, the Council employs a Parish Clerk to oversee the work of the Council and to administer Council meetings. The Clerk also acts as the Council’s Responsible Financial Officer.

Councillor Vacancies

There are eleven ‘seats’ on Sutton Parish Council, only eight of which are currently filled, so new parish councillors are needed to support the Council’s work and to ensure the Council can continue to provide a range of local services. The role of a parish councillor is rewarding and fulfilling. It is an enjoyable way of contributing to your community and helping to make it a better place to live and work. Have you ever thought about becoming a parish councillor?
