Parish Council

There are five parish councillors, supported by the Parish Clerk. Councillors are elected every four years. The next election is in May 2023.

The Parish Council meets at least four times a year to discuss planning issues, the landfill site at Forest Lane, matters such as road maintenance and drains, replacement of street furniture, and other issues of concern and interest to the parish.

In 2009, Alne Parish Council adopted the Alne Community Plan, and actions identified in the Plan are discussed regularly at meetings. A review and update of this plan will take place later in 2021.

The Parish Councillors from May 2021 are: Robert Brech (Chairman), David Walker (Vice-Chairman), John Newton, Eddie Edwards and Colin Fletcher.
