Elmstead Parish Council

Welcome to Elmstead Parish Council. Our website is updated on a regular basis to make communications with our residents fast and simple with everything easy to find. Please use the contact page to get in contact with the council.

Elmstead Parish Council is a local authority that makes decisions on behalf of the people in the village and as such plays a vital part in the community. Your local council is the first stop for concerns and ideas to improve your village​​​​​​ as a place to live, work and play. We will help by escalating issues to the authorities up the line, being Tendring District Council and Essex County Council.

  • The Parish Council meets on the third Thursday of every month at 7.00pm in the Community Centre. All are welcome to attend. 
  • The Planning Committee meets on the second Thursday of the month (if necessary) at 7.30pm.
  • The New Community Centre Committee meets as necessary on the first Thursday of the month at 7.00pm.
