They meet monthly as a Full Council and additionally as members of various committees and working groups covering such matters as Planning, Finance, Highways and Allotments. Members of the public are welcome at these meetings. More….

Rusthall Parish Council welcomes you to our website!  We hope that this will become the focus for everyone to share information about the activities of the village,to contribute to the blog, ask questions about anything and everything.  We will do our best to answer them.  Rusthall is a fantastic village with many organisations and groups and a vibrant high street.

Having a parish council now gives us all an opportunity to work together to improve the things which annoy or bother us and to improve our environment whether it be rubbish on the streets, weeds, muddy paths, lights that are on or off at the wrong time – lots of issues which we’re sure you will want to comment on and hopefully make suggestions as to how we solve some of these.

We really want to inspire the residents of Rusthall to think about how we can all contribute.

Rusthall Parish Council meets on the second Monday of every month, except August, at the Rackliff Centre (former fire station) at 7.30PM – Members of the public are welcome to attend.

The precept for the financial year 2016/17 was agreed by the Council at the December Full Council meeting. It has been increased from £65,000 to £72,000.
The increase was required to cover the usual increase in day to day costs and the possibility of having to take responsibility for the Mary Caley playground, installing CCTV and paying for double yellow lines. This amounts to an increase of £3.71 per band D property.
