Council

We are delighted to welcome Councillor Anthony Kitchen as the latest member of the Parish Council. Anthony has a great knowledge of the village, local area and wide professional experience to bring for the benefit of all residents. 

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.

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 during each monthly Parish Council meeting for residents to raise or share issues, news or ideas.

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