What does Preshute Parish Council do?
Our Councillors represents their community to the Parish Council and the management of the Parish to the community. We work with and represent the interests of our community to Wiltshire Council on matters of Highways, Planning, the environment, etc.
The Council is apolitical and meets approximately every other month at Manton Village Hall (usually on Monday evenings). The general public can attend these meetings. For the next meeting, click on the 'Parish Council' heading at the top of this page.
