Introduction to The Council

The full Council consists of fourteen members.  Five notionally representing Ecton Brook Ward; three in Great Billing; three in Little Billing and three in Middle (Bellinge) Ward. Whilst each Ward has its own Councillors, the Parish Council works as a whole, striving to improve the appearance of our neighbourhood, its facilities, security and policing, as well as maintaining Council owned land and property for the benefit of all residents. All Councillors are unpaid volunteers living in, and serving, the community. The Council has two employees. Sue Harris is the Clerk to the Council and Responsible Financial Officer, and Chris Campling is the Green Space Manager.
