The Parish Council

About Clymping Parish Council

The Council has no political, religious or ethnic affiliations and its income is received via a contribution in the Council Tax.

The Council’s objectives are to look after village interests and improve facilities for its residents. To meet these objectives, the Parish Council works with Arun District Council, West Sussex County, Environment Agency, local Police and residents of the village.

Clymping Parish Council consists of seven elected and co-opted members who live in the village and give their time and service on a voluntary basis. They are assisted by your Parish Clerk.

As the Clerk and Proper Officer, the Clerk is responsible for ensuring that the instructions of the Council in connection with its function as a Local Authority are carried out effectively following strict guidelines to meet government criteria and legislation. The Clerk is there as an independent advisor to provide guidance and legal advice where applicable and to manage all of the Councils resources reporting to the Council as a whole.

On a day-to-day basis the Clerk manages all Council issues, correspondence, queries, all Council and Committee meetings including issuing agendas and related minutes and ensuring legislation is complied with.

The views of residents are actively sought in respect of all matters of village life. Should you have any questions relating to the work of Clymping Parish Council, please do not hesitate to contact
