About The Council
Membury is an ancient village with a lively modern community, situated in East Devon’s Blackdown Hills.
The parish council represents the residents of Membury Parish on local issues. Council functions include: emergency planning for flooding and snow, grass cutting, war memorial maintenance, the playing field (working with the playing field association), car park maintenance, footpath monitoring and maintenance, management of the Quaker burial ground. The council also sponsors the village Neighbourhood Plan.
Parish council meetings are held approximately every 6 weeks, usually on a Tuesday night, in the Village Hall, starting at 7.30pm.
Meetings are open to everyone, and all parishioners are invited to attend. There is a public forum at the end of every meeting; alternatively you can raise questions in advance of a meeting through the clerk or any of the councillors.

Membury Neighbourhood Plan

The recommendation to formally 'make' the Plan was approved on 27th April 2020.
Any planning applications can be found here. You can search for a planning application, an enforcement action or a planning appeal by address, postcode or map. You can also look at applications by week or month. For additional information on how to view planning applications, follow this link.
The Membury Home Emergency Plan
Please find a record of Parish Council accounts current and historical here.
Our parish contains 18 miles of footpaths through some beautiful countryside. We maintain these in liaison with Devon County Council. As well as regular repairs, we are looking at replacing stiles with gates when possible, to make access easier for everyone.
