serving our community

Who we are and what we do

Walton-in-Gordano is in the Gordano Valley Ward of North Somerset Council - a Unitary Authority

     The Council has no standing committees.

     The Council has no bye laws, and holds no property beyond one street

        light and two notice boards.

     The Village Hall is run by a charitable trust and the burial ground at St

        Paul’s Parish Church by East Clevedon Benefice.

     Regular meeting Agenda items cover Emergency Services, Traffic,

        Planning, Highways and Finance.

     Unresolved issues remain on the agenda, which has additional items

        added as they  arise.

     The meeting minutes posted on this website go back to 1973.

     We hold an Annual Meeting each May to elect  a Chair, Vice Chair and

        Representatives to Outside Bodies. 

     The Annual Residents' Meeting in May, receives reports from local interest

        groups and discusses matters of local concern.

     This small Parish doesn't have a Parish Plan, Quality Status, or Local

        Charters, although we learn from the requirements of those things in terms

        of  best practice.

     We are a Civil Parish of some 280 people living in around 160

        homes, 13 miles west of Bristol city centre.

     The Civil Parish covers the village of Walton-in-Gordano and the

        areas of Walton Down and Walton Bay.

     We have up to five Council members and employ a part-time

        Clerk, who is also the Responsible Financial Officer.

     Council Members serve for a term of four years and can put

        themselves forward for relection at the end of their term.

     The Council uses the Clerk’s home address for postal purposes

        and current files, and digitises all archive files. 

     We meet as a full Council on the second Monday of every

        month except August.
