Rockland St Mary with Hellington Parish Council The Council

Parish Council

Parish councils are the first level of local government and are statutory bodies.  They provide services and facilities to meet local needs and improve community wellbeing, and they are elected by residents.

A parish council is made up of a number of Councillors, one of whom is also the Chairman, and together they form the council.  Rockland St Mary with Hellington Parish Council has seven Councillors, one of whom represents Hellington.  Councillors are elected for a four-year term, with the next elections taking place in May 2023.  The council is served by a Parish Clerk.

Parish councils meet on a regular basis to discuss local matters and make decisions about how to best serve the people they represent in the local community.  Rockland St Mary with Hellington parish council meets every month except August - meeting details can be found in the Meetings section of this website.

The Parish Council is responsible for:

  • Green Lane Playing Field
  • Black Horse Dyke Car Park and pond
  • Street furniture such as dog bins, bus shelters, seats/benches, noticeboards, defibrillators, speed awareness monitors, etc.
