About the Parish Meeting and Village Committee

The Parish meeting exists to discuss parish affairs and to conduct a number of statutory functions, such as (but not limited to) alteration of boundaries and rights of way, management of allotments, and appointment of trustees to parochial charities. It can also be an interested party in licensing applications, provide lighting for roads, and manage open spaces, include prosecuting others for encroachment. The Parish Meeting precepts the District Council for funds, and its use of those funds is audited and presented in annual Accounts. An AGM takes place between 1st March and 1st June each year.

The Chairman is Paul Challen, who can be contacted by the village mail, burphamandwepham@gmail.com
