About the Parish Council

Staunton Coleford Parish Council exists to serve and represent the best interests of everyone who lives in the local parish community.

It operates within the wider legal framework that establishes and empowers all forms of local government including parish councils.


Councillors are democratically elected and serve the parish as volunteers. They receive no financial reward for what they do.  The business of the Parish Council is administered by the Parish Clerk, who is also the Council’s Responsible Finance Officer.  The Clerk is an employee of the Council and can be contacted via email: stauntoncolefordpc@gmail.com

See Councillors’ names and contact details.


Meetings of Staunton Coleford Parish Council are normally held either in the Village hall on the second Tuesday of each month (except April, August and December) unless advertised differently. Meetings start at 7:30pm . Provisional dates and venues of future meetings can be found here or on our calendar. The agenda  is displayed, three days in advance of a Meeting on the Notice Board on the pound and next to the village pub. It is also available on the website.  Minutes, once approved by the Parish Council and signed by the Chairman, on the website on our Agendas and Minutes page and are available direct from the Parish Clerk. Any member of the parish is welcome to attend council meetings. An opportunity is provided for local residents to speak during a Council Meeting on any item on the published agenda. All other matters should be addressed directly to the Clerk in writing or by email.
