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.

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.
