East Knoyle Parish Council has 11 elected members who meet monthly in the village hall, with the dates of these meetings published in the village diary. Parish Council meetings are open to the public for the whole of each meeting. Members of the public may speak during the first 15 minutes on the invitation of the chairman.
In 2008, a steering committee, chaired by Paul Knocker, sought the views of those living here on how the village should develop. This resulted in the production of the Parish Plan which was subsequently distributed to every household in the village. The plan has been adopted by the Parish Council and endorsed by Salisbury District Council. This was followed by a Design Statement that defined the standards and materials to be used in the parish for new build, alterations or extensions that require planning consent. It also established the need to protect the character of the village and the hamlets, as well as "green" spaces, views from homes, footpaths and special locations, such as the church.
Please note: Contact with members of the Parish Council can be made through the Clerk to the Council.
