Ever wondered what your Parish Council is here to do?

Parish councils vary in size depending on population and is set by the local Borough Council. Methwold Parish Council has 13 seats. All members must live within an area in or around Methwold Parish and they represent the parish on various matters.  The council are effectively the third tier of local government, the other two being Norfolk County Council and King’s Lynn & West Norfolk Borough Council. The Full Council meets at 7.30 pm usually on the second Thursday of the month in the Fenton Room in the St. George’s Hall Complex.  The public is very welcome to attend and we encourage people to speak during the open forum which is part of each formal meeting.  We discuss varying issues which affect the community and are directly responsible for:

 St. George’s Hall Venue Complex.

            & Children’s Play Area


We also make comments on all planning applications although the Borough Council or County Council make the decision.  


We regularly discuss issues such as local roads and supporting local groups.

From time to time we also invite speakers to our meetings to hear about the Local Developments and Community Policing.
