The Parish Council is an important part of local government. It is a corporate body, the first elected level of our three tier system of local authority and closest to the electorate. Parish Councillors are unpaid and politically non-aligned. There are over 9,000 parish councils in England.

Exminster Parish Council consists of up to eleven Councillors; elected every four years. All parish councillors are required to abide by the Code of Conduct.
