Welcome to the Batcombe Parish Council Website

The Parish Council's website is continually being developed and will gradually provide more information about the parish of Batcombe, local organisations, news and events - as well as those documents the Parish Council is required to publish.  

BATCOMBE is a parish in the east of Somerset between Frome and Shepton Mallet, which consists of the villages of Batcombe and Westcombe together with a number of outlying hamlets and farmsteads.  At the centre of the parish lies St Mary's Church with its magnificent 16th century tower, the Three Horseshoes pub, and a community centre consisting of the award-winning Jubilee Hall and the Old School Rooms.  (To learn more about the Jubilee Hall and Old School Rooms click on the link to the Village Hall Trust website.)

Parish and District Council Elections

Only five candidates were nominated for election to the Parish Council and so these five candidates - Mary Comley, Jayne Cox, Peter Glaisher, Janet Jones and Ian Sage - have been elected without a contest and take office from Tuesday May 7th.  See below for the Declaration of Result from the Returning Officer.  


The two remaining spaces on the Council will be filled by co-option at the first meeting of the newly elected Council on Wednesday 8th May (not the June meeting as previously stated).  Anyone wishing to serve on the Parish Council should inform the Clerk in writing by Tuesday 7th May.  See the Notice of Vacancies on the Parish Council below for more details.


Two candidates were nominated for election to the Postlebury Ward of the District Council - Michael Gay (Green Party) and Linda Norris (Conservative Party Candidate).  The election will take place on Thursday May 2nd.  See below for the Statement of Persons Nominated, the Notice of the District Council Election and the Election Timetable.
