West Buckland Parish Council

The Parish Council deals with the things within our local community that can affect us all:  sometimes in small ways and sometimes in quite significant ways. If you care about what happens around the village and wider parish the parish council is the means by which these things can be directed and influenced by local people like you.

West Buckland Parish Council is involved with all of the following: * Consultation on all planning applications within the parish * Management of the village playing field & its facilities * Highways and public rights of way * Funding for Churchyard maintenance * Maintenance of public open spaces * War memorial care * Parish website * Setting the Parish Council budget that determines the precept.
