Bestwood Village Parish Council
Bestwood Village Parish Council owns and is responsible for the recreation space in The Square, the football pitch, children’s playground and exercise equipment. The council is also responsible for the Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) and BMX track at the side entrance to Bestwood Country Park. We maintain the flower troughs around the village and the displays around the signs at the entrance to the village.
Councillors are elected every 4 years by residents of the parish and anyone, (with certain exceptions) can stand for election. ou can find out more about your current councillors here. The next elections will be in May 2023. Our clerk handles communication & record keeping for the council, so if you need more information or to contact us, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Parish Council meet on the second Tuesday of most months, currently in St Mark's church at 7pm. Residents are welcome to observe our meetings - Details can be found on the meeting page.
Our work is funded by the ‘precept’ you pay as part of your council tax and this is currently around £30 per year depending on your Council Tax band. This covers our overheads and grants for local activities.
Technically Ashfield DC and City Council addresses fall outside of our parish boundary. However, all village residents are considered and encouraged to enjoy the local facilities.
