The Parish Council consists of 9 councillors plus one part-time employed Clerk who is also the Financial Officer. The Council also has two temporary part-time assistants, one to advise the Council on all the larger planning applications affecting the parish, and the other supports the clerk with the administration of the Council.
The Parish Council meet on the second Thursday of each month at 7pm at Eastington Village Hall. Members of the public are very welcome to attend and there is a 20 minutes “public session” near the start of the meeting for the public to bring matters of concern to the Parish Council’s attention.
The Planning Committee meet on the fourth Thursday of each month usually at 7pm at Eastington Village Hall; meetings are convened only when there is sufficient business to discuss.
The Resources Committee is convened when there is sufficient business to discuss and deals with all staffing and financial matters.
There are also various working groups who take initial responsibility for particular areas and report back to the Parish Council on a quarterly basis. The groups are:
- Getting Around Group (highways, traffic, footpaths)
- Churchyard & Burial Group (closed churchyard and burial ground).
