Parish Council

West Monkton Parish Council meets every month on the second Tuesday of the month at 7.00pm in Brittons Ash Community Hall.  Question time is usually reached by about 7.10pm when members of the public can ask questions or express an opinion.

In addition there are working parties which pursue particular activities and report back to full council: meetings with SWT planners and developers: meetings to discuss reports and consultation reports.  The Parish Council is a statutory consultee for various strategic and planning matters.

Additionally, the Parish Council has worked in conjunction with Cheddon Fitzpaine Parish Council to deliver a Neighbourhood Plan for the area.  Members of the pubic are welcome to attend the Parish Council meetings, and volunteers to help get engaged in community activities are always welcome.

The Parish Council has developed a vision and objectives, available here: West Monkton Parish Council Vision and Objectives
