Welcome to Southbourne Parish Council



Southbourne Parish Council is the tier of Local Government closest to the people. The next tier of Government for Southbourne is the South Chicester District Council and the final tier is the West Sussex County Council.

On our website we outline the role and services provided by the Parish Council along with the details of our councillors. We provide you with the dates of our meetings and copies of the agendas and minutes.  

This site will enable you to find out about our vibrant community and understand the roles and responsibilities of the Parish Council. It is our intention to enable more residents to play an active role in the community, participate in more activities, attend Parish Council Meetings, take advantage of our local facilities and thoroughly enjoy living in Southbourne.
