How to contact Shrewton Parish Council.

Parish Councillors

The Parish Council is comprised of eleven elected Councillors and meets monthly to discuss issues relating to the village (Shrewton is both a Civil Parish and a Village.  The boundaries are the same – if you live in the Parish you also live in the Village).

Councillors are all elected. On occasions where vacancies exist and the number of applicants does not exceed that, then councillors are elected unopposed which is also referred to as “co-opted”.

Grants

The Parish Council also awards grants to support local initiatives and organisations. This requires a commitment by those who stand as Councillors to participate fully in village life as well as attending these meetings.

Transparency Requirements

There are transparency requirements of the Parish Council. This includes publishing all minutes of meetings and having an annual audit. Minutes of all Parish Council meetings are made public – on the notice board and here on the Council Meetings page.
