Welcome to Bolney Parish Council
We are a non-political body with 9 councillors who are elected every four years. The next elections will be held in 2019.
The Council acts on behalf of the community, giving views on planning applications and other proposals that affect the parish. It can also influence other decision makers and help deliver services to meet local needs and make a difference. We raise money through the precept and have a range of powers to spend this money efficiently to provide an effective service and improve the quality of life and the local environment.

Two Vacancies for Parish Councillors
The Parish Council is currently looking to co-opt two new members. Bolney Parish Council is a non-political body and meets at 8pm on the third Tuesday of each month in the Rawson Hall.
Councillors must act within the law and abide by an agreed code of conduct. Although the rules and regulations are important, the role of the councillor is much wider than that. They should;
- Represent the interests of parishioners
- Respond to the needs and views of the community
- Suggest ideas for better services or improvements
- Look for ways to find out what is important to the community
- Engage in constructive debate about proposals and help make decisions with the council as a single corporate body
- Work in partnership with MSDC and WSCC, other parishes and service providers to help develop and improve the quality of life and environment in the parish
If you would like to discuss further what being a Councillor entails please contact the clerk, then an informal chat can be arranged with one of our current Councillors, or come along to a council meeting to see for yourself.
