About the Council

Bawdrip Parish Council has five members, supported by a Clerk, 

who has administrative and financial responsibility for its activities. 

The Council meets monthly at the Parish Hall except for August.

 Members of the public are welcome to attend all meetings. The agenda will be published approximately five days before the meeting.

Please contact the Clerk for further information:  bawdrippcclerk@btinternet.com

The Parish Council works closely with local authorities but also may interact with other agencies such as Wessex Water, the Environment Agency and local Police.

It monitors the impact of traffic and transport within the Parish, checks the state of footpaths, signs and rights of way and reports to Somerset County Council. It provides information to local people through this website and the notice boards and can offer support to community initiatives.

The Councillors and Clerk are bound to act in a lawful, ethical, responsible and transparent way as enshrined in Standing Orders and the Code of Conduct


If you would like to make a suggestion or you feel strongly about something, the most effective way of asking the Parish Council to pursue it on your behalf is to come to a Parish Council meeting and tell us directly what needs doing and why.


 Every Parish Council meeting is open to the public, and there is always an opportunity for members of the public to speak. You do not need to tell us in advance that you wish to speak, but doing so helps us to plan the meeting agenda.


Alternatively, you can raise issues by writing to the Parish Clerk, or by speaking directly to any Parish Councillor.
