Parish Councils are the democratic bodies with the closest links to their communities. They are the first tier of Local Government. In addition to providing some services themselves, Parish Councils can make a vital contribution toward the priorities contained within the community strategies, which are prepared, by the District & County Councils.

The Parish Council makes decisions at meetings on varying subjects. The duration of such meetings depends upon the amount of business that has to be dealt with at each meeting.

Marston Moreteyne Parish Council is made up of 12 unpaid Councillors and looks after the interests of the parish and its inhabitants.

All full council meetings normally commence at 7.30pm in the Church End Lower School, Church Walk, Marston Moreteyne, MK43 0NE unless otherwise stated (see Parish Council Agendas).

The public are invited to attend all meetings and there is a public session at the start of each meeting where residents are able to address issues direct to the Council.


Full Council meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month with the exception of August and December. Planning and Finance Committee meetings are held as required (see agenda).  Agendas are usually published one week before the meeting.
