Sible Hedingham Parish Council meets in the Village Hall on the second Monday of every month; members of the public are welcome to attend all meetings and there is a Public Forum time at every Meeting during which members of the public can ask questions and voice their opinions and concerns. All Meetings are advertised on the Parish Council Office noticeboard and others around the village.

 

A Parish Council is the first tier of local government. The number of Councillors depends on the size of the Parish - in Sible Hedingham we have 13 councillors. Councillors are elected every 4 years in May - the next one being May 2019. If a Councillor resigns mid-term, there could be another election for a replacement or the Council will advertise the vacancy and co-opt from the available applicants. 

 

The leader of the Parish Council is the Chairman, who is elected every year by the Parish Councillors. Our current Chairman is Mr Ron Volkwyn. 

The office is open to the public between 9am and 2pm every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and either Friday am or pm depending on meetings. We would, however advise that you telephone first as the Clerk (Mrs G McCoyd) does sometimes have to be away from the office on other Parish duties. The phone number is 01787 462568.
