The Parish Council
Hunsbury Meadows Parish Council was formed in 2013. The current Council was elected in 2015 for four years with the next election originally planned for May 2019. However due to the formation of Unitary Authorities in 2021 Parish elections have been deferred to May 2020.
The Council has up to 8 elected Councillors plus a Parish Clerk. Anyone living, working or owning land within the Parish boundary is eligible to stand.
