The Parish Council meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month (except August) at 7.00pm in the Outwood Room of the Centenary Hall. Residents of the Parish not only have the right to attend these meetings but are also actively welcomed by the Council and always have the opportunity to raise questions or concerns they may have about any items on the agenda for that meeting.
The aim of the Council is to represent the interests of local residents with outside bodies such as District and County Councils, especially in areas such as planning and highways. We also try to work closely with these bodies to ensure our residents receive the best possible service.
Burstow Parish Council first came into existence in 1895 when it was joined with Horne and Outwood to form a Parish Council. In more recent times the three areas separated and each now has their own Council. Burstow has eleven members who are elected by local residents. Elections take place every four years.
