holt st james church paintingThe 9 councillors for Holt take an active interest in the local community. They represent the local people and if necessary work in partnership with them and others. Elections are held every four years, next being May 2024 when the post will be for 5 years.

The administrative work of the Parish Council is carried out by the Parish Clerk, Lisa Goodwin, a part-time employee, to whom problems, concerns and suggestions may be referred.

Individual Parish Councillors are, also, always pleased to help directly if they possibly can. 

Councillors are required to record possible financial interests which they or their spouses may have in a Public Register of Disclosable Pecuniary Interests. Councillors must record such interests on a form and disclose such interests at meetings of the Council and its Committees. 

Forms are available to view at
