Alveston Parish Council represents approximately 3,000 residents in Alveston, Rudgeway, Earthcott Green and the surrounding countryside.
The Council has an overall responsibility for the well-being of the local community with their work falling into the three main areas of representation, delivering services and striving to improve quality of life in the parish. This work is achieved using the funds collected from all residents by the setting of a Precept which is collected through the Council Tax system.
Services provided and maintained by the Parish Council include the Cemetery, play areas and playing fields, footpaths, dog and litter bins and planning consultation.
