Parish Council

Pyecombe Parish Council meets regularly in the Church, usually on the second Tuesday of each calendar month, although this arrangement is sometimes altered in order to ensure maximum attendance of this rather small Council.

Members of the public have a right, and are welcome, to attend meetings of the Council, 15 minutes in total will be allowed before the meeting for questions to the Council from members of the electorate on Agenda items.

A parish council is the level of government that  is closest to the community, with the district authority Mid Sussex District Council and South Downs National Park above it in the hierarchy.

The central function of the Council, the making of local decisions and policy relevant to the public interest of the parish, is performed at the meetings of the Council.
