The Council
Details of Councillors can be found on our website under Your Councillors and on our parish noticeboards. They meet on a monthly basis with the exception of August. However, sometimes extra meetings are convened for special reasons.

We have 11 Councillor positions representing our ward as follows:
5 for Monkston and Kingston
4 for Kents Hill and Brinklow
2 for Monkston Park.

Following the 2023 elections, all positions were filled. However, a vacancy has now arisen.  The time for calling an election has now expired so the Parish Council will discuss the details of the process for co-opting at their next meeting.   Vacancies do arise from time to time, so if you are interested in becoming a Parish Councillor, please get in touch with the Clerk for more information.
