Welcome to Crofton Parish Council’s website

Hello and a very warm welcome to the new and updated website provided and managed by Crofton Parish Council. The site is still under construction in some areas however we do not anticipate it to be long before it has full functionality as currently envisaged.

Although this website has been created primarily to publicise the council’s operations, it has been designed with the end-user (a current or prospective resident of the village) in mind, and therefore looks at bringing together a holistic view of community life and engagement, of which the council forms an important part, so that residents may engage with all aspects of community life as desired.

Before using this site please ensure you familiarise yourself with our data protection policies found here and here and our Conditions of Use found here.

Please navigate using the page headers or search bar. Suggestions can be made here whilst general enquiries and matters to be included on the agenda for our monthly meetings can be sent from here.
