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 to live and work.

We hold a formal statutory parish council meeting every month of the year, usually on the third Thursday of the month at Selling Village Hall at 7:00pm.

As well as carrying out its statutory functions, the parish 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 on our Facebook page and through this website. We also hold an open, public forum during each monthly parish council meeting for residents to raise or share issues, news or ideas.

Parish councillors are all unpaid volunteers with a variety of backgrounds. The current council administration is allowed seven councillors, these positions are currently filled. Elections of parish councillors take place every 4 years and the next election date will be in May 2023.  If you would like to know more about becoming a parish councillor, please contact our clerk or any other member of the parish council.
