Rottingdean Parish Council is the only Unitory Authority within the Brighton and Hove City Council Area 

Electors within the area of Rottingdean Parish elect 9 Councillors on the same 4 year timetable that applies to the City Council. The next election is due in May 2023. Only if 9 people put there names forward is there an election put to a vote. 

None of your Parish Councillors take a salary. They meet monthly, normally in the Whiteway Centre, and all residents are welcome to attend these meetings. 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.

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
