If you answer yes to these questions, your parish needs YOU!

Martlesham Parish Council has many functions and powers which can affect the quality of life of your community.  We look after open spaces, footpaths, play areas, bus shelters, litter and dog dirt bins; organise practical working parties; respond to planning applications and consultations; liaise with the principal authorities to raise matters of local concern, and work with local organisations. 

If you think you could be a councillor, please contact the Clerk for more information and also to check whether you are eligible.  Please come along to a meeting and find out what we’re like – we’d love to meet you!
