Welcome to the Frome Valley
Thank you for visiting the Frome Valley Parish Council website. We hope that it gives you the information you need or clear guidance as to where it may be found. The first thing to note is that Frome Valley Parish Council is the lowest level of English local government for the area with the higher levels being West Dorset District Council and Dorset County Council. Go to our Useful Links page for connections to the websites for these higher local government authorities plus associated Rural Services. On the same page you will also find links to Public Services (e.g. Police, Ambulance, Fire, etc). In addition will find links to the websites for Local Villages. Also please note that Frome Valley Parish Council is not involved in the arrangements associated with the parish churches. The churches within the locality are run by their respective Parochial Church Councils within the overall management of the Melbury Team of Ministers and Lay members. So again please go to our Useful Links page for links to the website for the Melbury Team and another website giving information on Historic Dorset Churches that includes information on the churches within the Council area.
Please go to the appropriate page by clicking on the blue text below or selecting the relevant tab in the Menu line above to view the information available. By placing your cursor over the menu tabs you will find that some have sub-pages giving additional information. In the About Us page there is information on the area administered and the Council organisation. The What's New page contains notices and information the Council feels would be of immediate interest to residents. As required by government legislation, the Minutes of Council Meetings, the statutory Financial Information plus the Pecuniary Interests of the Councillors are also available on this website. In addition the Consultations/Events page contains links to current local government or public services on-line consultations and/or training and similar events notified to the Council that residents may wish to access. These and others not notified to the Council may also be accessed on the Higher Authorities and Public Services websites accessed via the Useful Links page.
