Cerne Valley Parish Council

Cerne Valley Parish Council is a group parish, covering Cerne Abbas, Godmanstone, Nether Cerne and Up Cerne.

There are almost 800 people on the electoral role, and the parish council administers, on their behalf, Cerne Abbas Burial Ground, the children's playground in Duck Street, and 60 allotment gardens, all in Cerne Abbas.

Separate committees cover each of these services and a Footpath and Environment Committee deals with most other issues.

Whilst the parish council has no planning powers, it has to be consulted on new proposals in its area. Planning Committees are called, as required, to consider the council's response to local planning applications when time is set aside to hear the views of applicants, and neighbours may express their views.

The parish council meets in alternate months, starting in January each year and local residents are encouraged to attend and ask questions or make comments.

There are 12 parish councillors for the area, and their details are set out in the  Cerne Valley Parish Council Member List 2015 (PDF, 206kb) (opens in a new window). A parish council leaflet (pdf, 2Mb) (opens in a new window) is also produced.
