Your Council

Meet the councillors

The Parish is divided into three wards: Ansty is the largest ward with 5 councillors, Staplefield is represented by 3 councillors and Brook Street has 1 councillor.
The councillors are each  elected by public vote every four years.

We currently have a vacancy in the Ansty ward - please contact the clerk if you are interested in becoming a Parish Councillor.

It also employs a part time clerk who attends all meetings and deals with the administration and accounts.
