Welcome to Gosberton Parish Council
Gosberton Parish Council consists of two Wards, the Village Ward covering Gosberton Village and the Risegate Ward which covers Gosberton Risegate and Gosberton Clough.
The Council is made up of 7 Councillors for the Village Ward, 4 Councillors for the Risegate and Clough Ward and a Parish Council Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer.
The Council is responsible for the play area in Gosberton and the one in Gosberton Risegate, The Cemetery and several other areas and also has approximately 70 acres of allotments which are tenanted with scope for possible garden allotments if the demand is there. There is a Cemetery Keeper who also carries out litter picking through the main areas of the village and the play area in the Risegate.
The Council meets approximately every 6 weeks in the committee room at Gosberton Public Hall at 7.30pm. At the start there is a 10 minute slot for members of the public to speak on any subject they wish to bring to the notice of the Council. Councillors may ask them questions on the subject and either discuss the matter there and then or place it on the agenda for a forthcoming meeting.
Members of the public can stay for the meeting but are unable to speak on matters on the agenda unless asked to do so by the Chairman. There may be a situation where the public are required to leave the room if the matter to be discussed warrants this. Planning applications are discussed at the meetings and any comments received from residents are taken into consideration when the Council sends its opinions to SHDC.
Minutes of meetings are posted on this website and agendas of forthcoming meetings are placed on the Parish notice board outside the Co-op, near the Gosberton Playing Field and on the noticeboard at the footbridge near the Black Horse in the Risegate.
Any problems experienced by parishioners may be reported to any Councillors who will endeavour to resolve the problem or bring the matter to the Councils notice at the next meeting. A list of Councillors and their contact numbers can be found on this website and on the notice boards.
The clerk can be contacted on 07958 318616 during the hours of 09.00 - 17.00 Monday to Friday. Please note the clerk works part time hours only so please leave a message and you will be called back usually within 24 hours.
