East Brent Parish Council

Welcome to East Brent Parish Council Website

Our Objective in designing this website was twofold.  Firstly The Parish Council wanted to create a website that informed all parishioners and interested parties of the work of the council and to make more readily available public documents which had previously only been available as hard copies upon request.

Secondly, we wanted to create a wider community site where organisations within the parish could also provide information about the work that they undertake.  We hope that this section of the website will grow and provide feedback to the parish council and inform future decisions to be made.

We also hope that organisations within the parish will find it a useful resource to  enable them to broadcast the voluntary work that they are undertaking within the community.

If you would like your village organisation to be included within the website please email webadmin@eastbrentparishcounil.org.uk

The website was created under the direction of a sub committee of The Parish Council, I should like to thank the committee for their hard work in creating what I hope parishioners will find a useful resource.

All parishioners in the villages of East Brent, Rooksbridge and Edingworth are stakeholders in our community and we would welcome comments on how we can improve the website.

Please email The Clerk at theclerk@eastbrentparishcouncil.org.uk with any feedback that you might have.

I do hope that you find our website helpfull and informative.  

Chairman, East Brent Parish Council.

Possible New Housing Development at the Northern end of the Old Bristol Road.

You may be aware that a development company, Walsingham Planning, intend to apply to Sedgemoor District Council for Outline Planning Approval for a housing development at the Northern end of the old Bristol Road on or about the 8th February 2109.

This outline planning application will be for 40 new homes, 16 of which will be 'affordable' homes, as required by the emerging local plan.

I understand that Walsingham Planning will be sending out a Consultation Newsletter to all Parish residents from the 10th January 2019.

These are extremely short timescales but I urge all residents to read the Walsingham Planning proposals carefully and, if you feel that you have something to say then please repond within the timescales given.

To see the documents that you will be receiving, please click here:
