Welcome Rottingdean Parish Council

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 a salary or claim expenses. They meet 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.

The Parish Council closely monitors proposals that affect the Village and seeks to influence decisions when necessary. Our planning sub commitee considers every planning application in the Parish, whilst our Beacon Hill Working Group works to develop and improve our nature reserve.

RPC can also initiate proposals for  investments to improve to the Village environment.  An important function of RPC is using the Rottingdean Council tax precept to make grants and donations  to initatives which benefit the Community.   Our grant application form and guidance can be found under policies - discretionary grants and donations tab

The Parish Council has a number of Advisory Groups that consider  the detail of proposals and make recomendations to the full Parish Council to consider.

First created in November 2010, this website is regularly updated and new ideas for content are often added. As well as providing public information, the Parish Council wishes to hear your feedback, ideas and comments, so please e-mail your views direct to us by filling out this form
