The parish of Hellesdon is represented by sixteen Parish Councillors and divided into two wards: Hellesdon North West and Hellesdon South East, each ward being represented by eight Councillors.
The Parish Council is a body that represents local opinion. The Councillors are people who are either elected or co-opted representatives of the community who voluntarily have put themselves forward to carry out a role and have duties and responsibilities for the parish. Being a Parish Councillor is being part of the democratic community governance of the country.
The council normally meets on the first Tuesday of each month. The Council also has standing committees which look after detailed business and these also meet on a regular basis. Members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend all meetings of the Council. All meetings are required by law to be advertised and agendas are placed on local parish notice boards. The Council is a member of the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) and Norfolk Association of Local Councils (Norfolk ALC).
The Hellesdon Community Centre is managed by Hellesdon Parish Council. It provides a pleasant and congenial centre for residents through a range of activities for different ages, either free of charge or at an affordable price. Read more…
