The Parish Council consists of a Chairman and five Councillors who meet in Essendine Village Hall. The date and the agenda for the meeting is posted on the notice board and on the meetings calendar on this web site 3 clear days before the meeting date.

As an elected body we are responsible to you, the people we represent. Attending a council meeting is the best way to find out what we do. Look in the Meetings Calendar to find dates for our public meetings.

Where do we get our money from?

Each year a sum of money called a 'precept' is collected through your council tax. This money is used by the Parish Council to improve facilities and services for local people.
