Benwick Parish Council

Benwick Parish Council consists of 7 elected members. Elections are held every four years, with the next one in 2019.

The Parish Council meets on the first working Monday of each month, in the side room of the village hall.

There are 15 minutes at the beginning of every Parish Council meeting where the public can ask any questions, or raise any concerns to the Parish Council.


    As a result of recent resignations, there are three vacant seats on Benwick Parish Council.
    It is, therefore, necessary for the Parish Council to fill these vacancies by co-option.
    To qualify as a co-optee, a person must be:-
    1) a British or EU national citizen
    2) at least 18 years of age
    3) not be debarred from standing as a Councillor
    4) on the list of electors for the parish, or during the whole of the preceding twelve months have either:
    a) occupied land as owner or tenant within the parish
    b) had a principal or only place of work there
    c) lived within three miles of the parish boundary
    If you are interested in becoming a co-opted member for any of the three vacancies on Benwick Parish Council, please make application (either by letter or email) to the Proper Officer to Benwick Parish Council, using the contact details at the
    foot of this notice.
    The deadline for receipt of applications is 30th April 2017 and the Parish Council will undertake the co-option process at its meeting on 8th May 2017.
