Full Council Meetings
What we do
The Parish Council is the tier of Local Government closest to the people and it is a non-political body. It is at the 'grass roots' and as such is in the best position to understand and represent the views of the local community.
The Parish Council comprises 14 members, Parish Council meetings are now usually held on the second Tuesday of each month, in the Bersted Jubilee Hall, in order to discuss issues affecting the parish and its residents. An Open Forum session is always included to allow questions, comments and contributions from the general public. Please note that any correspondence received by the Clerk, unless stipulated private and confidential, may be disseminated to all serving Parish Councillors and the contents, including the author's name, may be discussed openly in a public meeting.
An Elector’s Meeting is held in March, to which all residents are welcome to attend to hear reports from the Council.
Parish Council elections are held every four years, and were held in 2015. Any vacancies that arise between elections are filled either by holding a by-election or by co-option.
There is a Full Council Meeting on the second Tuesday of every month. Members of the public are welcome to attend the meetings. The meetings are held at the Bersted Jubilee Hall, Chalcraft Lane, North Bersted.
