Mendlesham Parish Council


Mendlesham Parish Council is an elected tier of local government. The parish covers the villages of Mendlesham and Mendlesham Green and surrounding hamlets/properties.

Eleven Councillors are elected every four years to represent the community, improve quality of life and the local environment. A Chair and Vice Chair are elected from the Councillors on an annual basis. A Clerk is employed by the council as an advisor, administrator and responsible finance officer.
