The Parish Council and Official Information about Maiden Newton

Maiden Newton Parish Council owns and administers such things as the play area, the Multi-User Games Area, the allotments and the war memorial. It is in frequent contact with our two local authorities - WDDC for planning applications, refuse collection and other matters; DCC for highways and transport. The Parish Council is paid for by the precept which forms part of the council tax.

(Incidentally, Frome Vauchurch does not have a parish council, relying instead on the Parish Meeting).

The Council meets on the first Thursday in every month at 7:00pm in the Communal Room at Webber's Piece. All members of the public have a right to attend and during the first part of the meeting can raise issues of concern to them.

The Council has seven members, including the Chairman and Vice Chairman, and a clerk.
