East Langton Parish Council needs you!

Make a change

What does the Parish Council Do?

East Langton Parish Council has overall responsibility for the wellbeing of the community in the Parish. Our work falls into three main categories:
• Delivery of services
• Improve quality of life for residents
• Give the community a democratic voice

As well as commenting on planning applications we have updated the Neighbourhood Plan, established a wildflower verge project, installed public seating and dog bins and maintain them along with the public footpaths.

Becoming a Parish Councillor

• Monitoring
• Getting involved locally

We also collaborate with the District and County Councils.
