Sutton Veny Parish Council

The Parish Council is a tier of Local Government, alongside Town and District Councils. Contrary to popular belief it is nothing with to do with the Church or the PCC (Parochial Church Council) and the term 'parish' refers to the local government-defined parish.

The Parish Council is the representative body for the parish of Sutton Veny and reports to both West Wilts District Council and Wiltshire County Council on a range of issues including (but not limited to) Planning, Highways, Rights of Way, Street Lighting, Play Areas.

The Council consists of nine members plus a Clerk and we meet monthly (except January and August) to discuss a range of topics relating to the parish. Our meetings are held in the Village Hall, usually on the first Thursday of each month, commencing at 7.00 pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend and we start our meetings with an 'Open Session' for the public to present their views or comments on Council-related matters (a 3-minute per topic ruling applies).
