About the council

Situated in picturesque West Dorset, this group Parish Council  has existed since 1972 when Corscombe Parish Council and Halstock Parish Council were amalgamated with the inclusion of East and West Chelborough parishes.

Corscombe and Halstock have five councillors each and the Chelboroughs one each. Councillors are elected by, and represent, the electors of each parish but make joint decisions for the parishes.  Elections are every four years but vacancies may be filled by election or co-option at any time.
