Welcome to Binsted Parish Council

Welcome to Binsted Parish Council’s new website. The site aims to provide easy access to information, both about the parish council and about our beautiful local area.

All members of the parish council aim to work as a team, in the community’s interest, to improve the local environment, initiate and lead projects, and act on matters that local people need and care about.

If there is anything that you feel the council should be aware of, or where it can help or support you, then please contact us. The easiest way to do so is to use the website contact form. This goes to our Parish Clerk, who will answer your enquiry direct, or forward it on to the relevant Councillor, as appropriate.

We’d also love to hear your feedback on our new website and suggestions as to how it can be developed further, to be more useful for the community.
