East Preston Parish Councillors

East Preston Parish Council is made up of thirteen councillors - this number is set by Arun District Council and can only be changed through a community governance review. Currently the council has all thirteen councillors in post.

Occasional councillor surgeries are held at venues across the village and these are advertised on Noticeboards and in the News section of this website. 

If you are unable to attend a council meeting or a councillor surgery, please contact the office where the Clerk can arrange for a pair of councillors to come out and visit you at a mutually convenient time. Alternatively, a similar meeting can be arranged to take place in the Council Office.
