Fishburn Parish Council

Parish Councillors

This page provides a list of parish councillors who are elected every 4 years.  Fishburn Parish Council has 11 council 'seats' serving an electorate of 1890 people. Councillors' home addresses, email addresses, and telephone numbers have been removed from the website following the Government's review of intimidation in public life and the introduction of changes to the rules which suggested that care should be taken to avoid disclosing such addresses.

The main point of contact with the Parish Council is through the Parish Clerk who can be contacted on most week days (Mon-Fri) during normal office hours (between 9am and 5pm) on telephone number: 07771 224860 (message service available), or via e-mail at:
