Working to Improve Our CommuniyCharmouth Parish Council

About Charmouth

Charmouth lies in the South West corner of Dorset at the heart of the Lyme bay coast line. Undulating hills encapsulate this great diversity, making this a prominent part of West Dorset's area of outstanding natural beauty. The coast line has both national and international designations which is part of England's first natural world heritage site.

Although a relatively small Parish, approximately 1800 resident population, Charmouth has a wealth of assets in land and buildings. These include the beach and foreshore area, incorporating the seafront car park and "Old Cement Factory"; large Playing Field in Barrs Lane; Cemetery and Chapel in Axminster Road; Allotment land; Works Depot in Wesley Close and The Elms building which houses the Council Offices. Please see our "Amenities" page for what these facilities have to offer.


2018 Meeting Dates

The Council agreed to hold meetings every other month, on a 6 week cycle, for a trial period of one year.  For dates of all scheduled meetings please see the attached Meetings Calendar.

Foreshore Car Park - Revised Parking Charges 

As part of the budget setting for 2018/19, at the Parish Council Meeting in December 2017, it was agreed to increase parking charges at the Foreshore Car Park from 1 April 2018 in line with the following Parking Charges Notice 2018

Parish Councillor Vacancies

Following the resignation of three Councillors, we are seeking applications from parishioners who would like to be considered for co-option onto the Council. The role is varied, interesting, sometimes frustrating and a great deal of the time, enjoyable!!  If you think you have a particular skill which you could bring to the table, please contact the Clerk for further information and apply in writing.

As well as the three vacancies for co-option, there has been a further resignation which is initially advertised as a casual vacancy according to procedure (see notice Casual Vacancy March 2018) and if an election isn't requested for 6 April, this will also become a vacancy for co-option.
