Stowey Sutton Parish Council

Stowey Sutton Parish Council

The Stowey Sutton Parish Council comprises several councillors & employs a part-time Clerk. We manage and fund a range of activities including maintenance of Parish Council owned common land and the playgrounds and the inspection and maintenance of trees.

We also review and comment on all planning applications within the parish; coordinate with Bath & NE Somerset Council on issues that affect the parish and help deal with local issues raised by parishioners.

You are welcome to contact your Parish Councillors about any local issue of concern. Their contact details can be found on the Your Councillors page. You may also contact the Parish Clerk by email or post, details can be found on the Contact & Newsletter page. You are invited to attend Parish Council meetings which are held at the Methodist Hall in Bishop Sutton. Prior to the start of each meeting there is always an open surgery for members of the public to raise any issues of concern they may have. Details about forthcoming meetings can be found on the Agenda page & the records of previous meeting can be found on the Minutes page.


Government Shielding food parcels

A number of residents will have already received a letter that explains that they must stay at home for twelve weeks due to their underlying health issues. There has been some confusion as many people thought they would automatically receive a food parcel. This is not the case, anyone that meets the criteria must go online and make a request - shielding measures. Some people may have not received a letter, so please encourage them to register.

We have received today the list of those who have registered and we are contacting them directly to find out what their current situation is and whether they need an emergency food parcel delivered to them over the next few days. We are not aware of anyone across B&NES that has received one of these Government food parcels as yet.
