Who we are & what we do
Tupton Parish Council is made up of 11 local people elected by the local community every four years.
Council meetings are normally held on the second Wednesday in the month, with the exception of August. All meetings are held at Tupton Methodist Church and start at 7pm. All meetings are open to the public with provision made at the start of each meeting for residents of the Parish to ask questions or raise matters of concern.
The purpose of the Council is to represent the interests of the whole community. They do this through their involvement in a range of local groups, direct contact with local people and wide ranging consultations with the local community.
Council Meetings - see the council meetings calendar for more information and a list of Council Meeting dates.
