About the Parish Council

Who we are & what we do

Kents Hill and Monkston Parish Council, representing the first tier of local government, serves the residential areas of Kents Hill, Monkston, Monkston Park and the industrial and shopping areas of Brinklow and Kingston. The council, together with the Clerk, provides, manages and deals with local services and issues of concern to/from residents. The Parish Councillor’s are volunteers who live within the parish and are elected by residents to represent them in specific geographical areas.

Details of Councillor’s can be found on our website under Your Councillor’s, on our parish noticeboards and in our quarterly newsletter inFACT, which is delivered to every household within the parish. They meet on a monthly basis with the exception of August. However, sometimes extra meetings are convened for special reasons.

Our Work

Our work falls into three main categories:

  • Representing the local community
  • Delivering services to meet local needs
  • Striving to improve the quality of life in the parish

The Parish Council is there to represent you, and drive forward the initiatives that you identify as being important to our community. We welcome all your views and encourage you to attend our meetings or become involved in our committees, working parties or community groups. You are welcome to contact any member of the council or the clerk about local issues – Contact Us
