Community governance review


Longdon is situated midway between Lichfield and Rugeley. Key settlements include Longdon Green, Longdon (Brook End), Upper Longdon and Gentleshaw.

Consultation response

The Parish Council has previously passed a resolution requesting that the District Council consider reducing the size of the Parish Council from 11 Members to 9 Members. 


That Longdon Parish Council be reduced from 11 councillors to 9 councillors.


It is considered a smaller council is appropriate given the population of the parish and will:

  • address difficulties experienced when filling vacancies
  • make it easier to achieve a quorum

As such the recommendation will contribute towards effective and convienient local governance.
