About Studland Parish Council

Parish Councils were set up by statute in 1894 to provide government for people at a local level and to attempt to address their local issues.

Studland Parish Council consists of nine councillors, each elected to serve for four years, one of whom is the Chairman and another of whom is the Vice-Chairman. Chairman and Vice-Chairman are elected at the first Council Meeting (or Annual Meeting) in May. Casual Vacancies on the Council are advertised in the Council’s notice-cases.

The Council meets on the third Monday of each month, in the Village Hall at 7.30p.m. Notice of meetings and the full agenda of the items to be discussed are posted on the Council’s noticeboard (at the Village Hall) and also on this website. At each meeting, time is set aside for public discussion, when any parishioner may ask questions or air concerns or grievances.
