A very warm welcome to the Selling Parish Council website


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 Council meeting every month of the year, usually on the third Thursday, and always in public at The Village Hall starting at 7.00 p.m.

As well as carrying out its statutory functions, the Council has the ability to take the lead and promote initiatives, projects and improvements for the benefit of all our communities. To do this, Parish Councillors depend on knowing what is important to villagers and offer a variety of ways to engage at any one time.

As they all live in the village, your Councillors are available through face to face contact; via email; through letters or notes; by messaging us on our Facebook page; and through this website. We also hold an open, public forum at the begining of each monthly Parish Council meeting for residents to share issues, news or ideas.

Councillors are all unpaid volunteers and from a variety of backgrounds. The current Council administration is allowed seven councillors. Five of these positions are filled and we are actively seeking to co-opt two residents to become Councillors. If you would like to know more, please contact our Clerk or any other member of the Parish Council.

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.
