Belmont Rural Parish Council

Your Council

The Parish of Belmont Rural was established in April 2000, having previously been a ward within the Parish of Clehonger.  The Parish falls within the Belmont Rural Ward of Herefordshire Council.

Belmont Rural Parish Council has nine parish councillors whose details can be found by clicking on the link on the left.   Parish Councillors are volunteers who are elected at elections held every four years and receive no payment of any kind for the valuable work they carry out on behalf of the local community.  If a parish councillor resigns during his/her term of office, local residents can request a full election.  In the absence of such a request, the parish council are free to co-opt a suitable candidate. 


You don't have to be a councillor to contribute to your local community.  Belmont Rural Parish Council welcomes members of the public to its meetings and encourages members of the public to participate in those meetings.  We also welcome volunteers to our Pride in Parish scheme to undertake ad hoc litter picking or occasional gardening or public open space maintenance work such as bulb planting.  If you have time to spare, whether it's just the occasional hour or on a regular basis and would like to contribute to your local community, please contact the Parish Clerk.
