Welcome to Selling Parish Council

The Parish Council is an important tier of local government and works on behalf of Selling residents to make the whole village an even better place. We hold a formal statutory Parish Council meeting every month of the year, usually on the third Thursday, and during the pandemic online by Zoom starting at 6.00 p.m.

The impact of the Coronvirus COVID-19 crisis on the ability of all parish and other councils to hold their statutory meetings has led to the introduction of the Coronavirus Act 2020. This removes the need for meetings to be held in person and allows meetings to be held online or by phone. Our first ever online meeting was the scheduled meeting of Thursday 16 April 2020. We have continued to meet online every month since then and with members of our community present.

The Parish Council also formally resolved at its extraordinary meeting of 23 July 2020 to approve temporary delegated authority under Section 101, Local Government Act 1972 to transact normal business of the Council to the Proper Officer of the Council (Clerk) Wendy Gregory, acting in consultation with the Chair Andrew Bowles and Vice-Chair Kevin Hobson. It is in effect a sensible contingency measure to enable the Council to properly function and fulfil its statutory duties throughout any emergency.

We welcome your contributions of news, events, photos of village life, stories, ideas and of course feedback on our new website. Please use the Contact Us tab above.
