Parish Council
The Parish Council
The Parish Council is an autonomous local authority within the meaning of various acts of parliament. It is composed of representatives elected by the people of the parish to make decisions and speak on their behalf. It is a corporate body which means it exists as a legal entity, which is distinct from the rights and responsibilities of individual members.

Keinton Mandeville Parish Council has 9 members and meets on the first Tuesday of every month in the village hall at 7.30pm. Minutes and agendas of the meetings are displayed on the Parish notice board situated on the side of the village shop.

Neighbourhood Watch
The police report at the last Parish Council meeting noted that we are still being visited by opportunist thieves who are looking for unlocked or poorly secured sheds and garages. Power tools, chain saws and similar are items on the 'shopping' list. Please lock sheds, outbuildings and garages and vehicles if left unattended

Oil club
Keinton Mandeville now has an oil club, providing an opportunity to reduce the cost of your heating oil. Not only do we group your order with others in your local club but we also group other clubs' orders around you! Therefore a club with 6,000 to 10,000 litres will be joined with other local clubs in a delivery area to make one large bulk order. In many areas we now order twice a month and in some areas three times a month during the busier months, ensuring you never need to miss out on a group order.

Planning Applications information
Planning application observations - a note to all parishoners.

When a planning application is made, the District Council have a duty to inform residents of neighbouring properties and to invite their observations. Similarly, the Parish Council is asked to consider and make observations on all planning applications in the village. Please note that South Somerset District Council DOES NOT routinely inform the Parish Council if it has received objections about the application. If you wish the Parish Council to take your comments into account in their deliberations, please make sure you either attend the Parish Council meeting in person or copy your comments to the Clerk in time for the meeting (check the date with the clerk beforehand.) Residents submitting applications are also welcome to attend the meeting at which their application will be considered. Agendas for all parish council meetings are displayed on the noticeboard on the side of the shop at least 3 clear days in advance of the meetings.
