Langham Parish Council
Langham Parish Council comprises 7 councillors and employs a part-time Parish Clerk, Kevin Webb. The last election was in May 2015.
Council Meetings are held approximately every 2 months in the Parish Room. Meetings are open to the general public and before each meeting begins there is an item "Parishioner Questions" where members of the public can raise any Parish matter. Under the law governing Parish Councils, matters to be discussed at the meeting must be on the agenda especially if there is any expenditure involved.
Contact the Council via any of the Councillors or the Parish Clerk. For wider ranging issues our representatives to the Borough and County Councils and Parliament are also listed on relevant pages.
All members of the Parish Council make every effort to attend the bimonthly meeting of the PC.
