Parish Council


The Parish Council is an elected body of people who manage the day-to-day running of the village. It consists of a Chairman, Clerk and other elected members.

The Parish Council manages such things as:

  •  Planning applications
    (enter Sutton cum Lound into the search box)
  •  Road sweeping
  •  Grass cutting
  •  … and pretty much anything that affects the village

The Parish Council meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm at the Village Hall. Meetings are open to any members of the public who would like to attend. See the Village Hall schedule for meeting dates and times and to set an email reminder.

They are always on the look-out for new people who want to take an interest in the running of the village. If you would like to be involved then please contact the Parish Clerk to express your interest (see below).
