The activities of the Parish Council consist mostly of fairly mundane discussions at our monthly meetings about the incompatibility of canine waste and pedestrian areas, grass-cutting, overhanging bushes, flood prevention and litter, amongst other things. The outcome of these discussions is either making sure that our regular contractors know what needs to be done, or informing higher authorities such as Somerset Council and the Environment Agency of what needs to be done.
Occasionally, though, the Parish Council will undertake specific projects to improve the environment or quality of life in Ilchester. These projects need dedicated funding for which we pursue all likely external agencies for grant aid before we dip into our parish funds. You will find on this page details of all the special projects the Council is planning or has in hand.
