Notice to everyone in Charmouth

Normally the Parish Council has held its Annual Parish Meeting by now, but with the various restrictions and safeguards still in place we have been unable to.  We wanted to let you know that the meeting is now planned for 2022.

In the meantime, you can of course contact the Parish Council by email on or phone on 01297 560826 (office opening hours are 9-10.30am Mon-Fri).  You can also attend any of the regular Council meetings, the calendar for which is also set out on the website.

Our website is a very good source of information, there you can find all the minutes of our meetings, our amenities, our staff and councillors, together with our policies and procedures.

If you would like to get involved and help shape the Parish please contact us about becoming a councillor.


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.
