Made up entirely of parishioners, the Parish Council is the first tier of local government for the parish of Knapton, North Norfolk.
Seven Councillors are elected, or co-opted, to represent the interests of their fellow residents of the village. Each May, at the Annual Meeting of the Council, the Councillors elect a Chair and a Vice-Chair to oversee the conduct of meetings.
All Parish Councillors are unpaid volunteers and come from various backgrounds, thereby providing a range of skills and a variety views.
The Parish Council meets most months on the first Tuesday of the month in the Village Hall to discuss the operation and upkeep of Parish Council facilities, as well providing representation on a variety of other local issues.
