The Stowey Sutton Parish Council comprises several councillors & employs a part-time Clerk. We manage and fund a range of activities including maintenance of Parish Council owned common land and the playgrounds and the inspection and maintenance of trees.
We also review and comment on all planning applications within the parish; coordinate with Bath & NE Somerset Council on issues that affect the parish and help deal with local issues raised by parishioners.
You are welcome to contact your Parish Councillors about any local issue of concern. Their contact details can be found on the Your Councillors page. You may also contact the Parish Clerk by email or post, details can be found on the Contact & Newsletter page. You are invited to attend Parish Council meetings which are held at the Methodist Hall in Bishop Sutton. Prior to the start of each meeting there is always an open surgery for members of the public to raise any issues of concern they may have. Details about forthcoming meetings can be found on the Agenda page & the records of previous meeting can be found on the Minutes page.
As you may be aware the next Census for England and Wales will take place on Sunday 21 March 2021.
The data the Census provides underpins the planning and funding of public services, therefore ensuring that our count here in South Gloucestershire is as accurate as possible is of paramount importance, so we receive the resource allocations and funding we are entitled to from central government and have the best data to plan our services effectively.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) will run the Census and have recently appointed Census Engagement Managers (CEMs) to take the work forward locally. The ONS has produced an informative 2021 Census Community Handbook which explains what the Census is all about, why it matters and how you can help to spread the word across your community. The handbook and other useful information can be downloaded from: https://census.gov.uk
