Tickenham Parish Council

Tickenham Parish Council has been in existence for getting on for 100 years and before that the Parish Meeting for a further thirty or forty years! Many things have improved over that time and the Council continues to consider a variety of issues affecting the village, not least planning applications and highways issues. There is much variety and some frustration but being a parish councillor is a commitment to maintaining the ethos of the village.

Tickenham is served by North Somerset CouncilCllr Nigel Ashton is our Ward Councillor and holds a surgery during the monthly Village Market (2nd Saturday of the month) in the village hall committee room, from 10.30am.
