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 Sue Heathman, the Parish Clerk, by email or post. 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.


Your Local Library Service And How You Can Stop It Disappearing

Our community has an exciting opportunity to start our own lending library with books supplied by the BANES Library Service. This is a one-off opportunity to put this into place and establish our very own library. This could also extend to a place to meet for coffee as well.

Proposed Drainage Works on A368 Wick Road in October

B&NES have a scheme planned for 16th October to improve the drainage of the A368 Wick Road between Folly Lane and Moorledge Road. This is in light of flooding of property ‘The Lodge House’ and also of the carriageway, the latter completely covering the carriageway and preventing access to Bishop Sutton. Work was attempted to be undertaken in June under temporary traffic signals, however, the lorries that use the road were running too close to the trench and it was unsafe to continue. As such, it is only possible to undertake the work under a road closure. The work is proposed to last for 3 weeks, during which time the road will be closed to vehicular traffic but open to pedestrians and cyclists.

Click here for more information or here for the full diversion, however, this is very long because closing an 'A road' means that the diversion must be along roads of equal category.
