Benenden Parish Council

Benenden Parish is a ‘civil’ or ‘administrative’ designation.  The Parish Council is the third tier of local government, below Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and Kent County Council.

The Parish of Benenden has around 800 households and 1800 inhabitants, of whom 1400 are on the Electoral Roll.  Within the parish – which covers an area of about seven miles by three miles – is the hamlet of Iden Green, as well as East End, Dingleden and Standen Street.  Benenden is bordered by the parishes of Cranbrook, Biddenden, Tenterden, Rolvenden, Sandhurst and Hawkhurst. Benenden Parish Council is made up of nine members, elected every four years.

The Parish Council meets in public eleven times a year.

Parish Councillors are unpaid, local people, elected by local people.  These volunteers put themselves forward for election to represent the community and give their time freely and willingly for the benefit of the whole village, supported by other parishioners involved in numerous groups and projects across the parish.

This website contains a plethora of information about the Parish Council, its business and its members. 

We welcome your feedback and invite your involvement in any of our activities.

We hope that you will find that the Benenden Parish Council website is fully accessible and it should function well with assistive technology. Should you find any areas of the site that present difficulties with access please let us know at and we will do our best to rectify the problem.
