A parish council is the first tier of local government and closest to the community it serves. There are seven councillor posts on Norwell Parish Council, all of whom have voting rights. We employ a parish clerk to administer the parish council’s affairs. The clerk is also the responsible financial officer.
Like district and county councillors, parish councillors are elected once every four years. Vacancies occurring between elections are filled either by election or co-option.
As parish councillors, we are all resident in Norwell parish. This includes both Norwell and Norwell Woodhouse. Parish councillors are unpaid volunteers.
We usually meet at 6.30 pm on the third Wednesday of each month (except August and December) at the Village Hall. All residents are invited to attend our meetings and participate in the public speaking sections of the agenda.
