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 twelve councillors in post. The Personnel Committee has agreed it is not practical to try and co-opt another councillor before the end of this term, May 2019.

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.

Where no co-option date is shown below the councillor was elected in the Local Elections of May 2015.
