Rottingdean is the only Parish Council within the Unitary Authority area of Brighton and Hove City Council. Electors within the area of Rottingdean Parish elect 9 Councillors on the same 4 year timetable as applies to the City Council with the next one due in May 2019. Only if there are more than 9 people putting their names forward is the election put to a vote. Central Government has committed itself to giving Parish, Town and District Councils more authority in the future.
None of your Parish Councillors take any salary or claim general expenses. It meets monthly in the Whiteway Centre and all residents are welcome to attend these meetings. It is a legal requirement that the agenda for these meetings is published at least 3 working days in advance and we place ours in the Parish Council notice board on the High Street side of the Reading Room. As a reminder, the dates of our Council and planning meetings are published in the Rottingdean Village News diary.
