Bildeston Parish Council

What we do…

A parish council is the tier of local government closest to the people. It is a locally elected body which represents the concerns and interests of the local community.

Bildeston Parish Council works closely with BaberghDistrict Council, who are responsible for waste collections, planning, communities, environmental protection and council housing. We also work with Suffolk County Council, mainly on Highways issues.

We play a vital role, and can influence, other decision makers and, in many cases, deliver services to meet local needs. We can make a difference!
