The Parish Council is a group of people who have been elected to make decisions for their Parish. Parish Councils are statutory bodies and are the first tier of Local Government.

There are seven Councillors representing the South Lenches who are elected for a term of four years or in the case of a casual vacancy are co-opted to serve the remainder of the four year term.

All members are required to abide by the Code of Conduct and to complete a Register of Interest Form and to update any changes.
