Who we are & what we do

Trotton-with-Chithurst parish council consists of seven councillors who serve for four year terms ending in 2019. All councillors are voluntary (unpaid) including one who also acts as the clerk to the parish.

Council meetings are usually held on the second Wednesday of every other month, usually in the Southdowns Manor or St George's church, Trotton. The public are welcome to attend the meetings - see the diary of meetings for more information.

If you need any information about the council and its services that you cannot find on this website, please contact the parish clerk who will be happy to give advice and assistance.
