Parish Council Meetings

The full council meets approximately once every three months. Members of the public are welcome to attend meetings, and may express their views to the council before the start of meetings of the full council. All meetings of the Council are advertised on the Parish Council notice board by School Lane, and the Events Diary.

The Parish Council is responsible for local matters and can advise Bath & North East Somerset council on e.g. planning applications, overgrown vegetation and signage.

To raise any matters of concern with the parish council, you may:

  • Email the clerk to the council Carolyn Beecroft at chelwood.parish.council@gmail.com

The Parish Plan

The Parish Plan was adopted by the Council in October 2012. The Plan sets out the Council’s vision for the future of the village and some of the goals that it seeks to achieve in the coming years. Hard copies of the plan can be obtained from the Clerk (see above) – or you can download the Plan for free here. Parish Plan .
