Idmiston Parish Council (IPC)
Idmiston Parish Council (IPC)

Who are we?

Most people's impression of what a Councillor does is that they just attend council meetings but nothing could be further from the truth! The duties and pleasure of being a Councillor are many and varied.


Parish Councils must have a minimum number of Councillors to remain legally enabled to make decisions on your behalf and allocate locally the funds raised by the Parish Precept which is paid as part of the compulsory Council Tax. If there is no Parish Council then these funds will be spent by the more remote, and locally disengaged, Wiltshire Council.

Idmiston Parish Council

We have 15 parish council seats.  When we have vacancies, often the seat can be filled by co-option which is a very simple process.  If you count less than 15 councillors in this section, we likely have some.  You can apply for co-option into the council by completing the form inside our standing orders located here.
