Parish Council History

The Teffont Parish Council was formed in 1934 by the amalgamation of the Parish Council of Teffont Magna (sometimes known as Upper Teffont) and the Parish Meeting of Teffont Evias (alternate acceptable spelling is Evyas, Ewias or Ewyas). It consists of seven Councillors who are, normally, elected every four years. Like all Parish Councils, it has very limited powers but, because all its members live locally, it is frequently the first port of call for anyone having problems with Local Government.

The Parish Council normally meets every two months but, in order to consider Planning Applications where it has some say, it will meet as a Planning Committee whenever necessary.

Notices and minutes of Council Meetings are posted on the Parish Council Meetings page and the two Parish Council notice boards in the village. All meetings, which usually start at 1830hrs and last about two hours, are open to the public although non-Councillors may not normally speak at them except during a short Question Time at the start of each meeting. The Parish Council sets an annual precept, which appears as part of Council Tax bills, to cover its expenses. The names, addresses and telephone numbers of the Chairman and Councillors of the Parish Council, of the Council's Clerk and of the Wiltshire Councillor, whose ward includes Teffont, are listed on the Council's notice boards and on this website.

This means that the content of the VDS will be taken into account by the Council when determining planning applications. In 2017 the VDS available below, was reviewed, updated and published.
