The Great Bealings Parish Council meets regularly in the Village
Hall. Topics range from organising village events, reviewing local
planning applications, dealing with traffic issues, clearing litter,
and dealing with local footpath maintenance.
Vacancy for Parish Councillor
There is currently a vacancy for a Parish Councillor due to the
recent resignation of Steve Condon. Parish Councils are the first
tier of Local Government in England and are closest to the people.
Parish Councillors have two main responsibilities: representing
the whole electorate within the parish and striving to improve quality
of life in the parish. They have direct responsibility for a few
services e.g. determining the local response to planning applications.
They can influence many things by working in partnership with East
Suffolk Council and Suffolk County Councillor. District Councillors
attend most of our meetings.
The Parish Council is an effective way to get involved in community
life. Parish Councillors are elected by the public or are co-opted
by the other Councillors. No previous experience is necessary, and
expenses in carrying out duties are covered. Being a Parish Councillor
requires some time and commitment and a willingness to undertake
training courses. Full meetings are held bi-monthly in the evening,
and occasional ad-hoc Planning meetings are held in the interim
If any resident is interested in being considered for co-option
to the Council now, please contact the Clerk as soon as possible.
If you would like more information about the work of the Council
and/or the duties of its Councillors, please contact the Chairman
Sue Prentice on 01473 738312 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
