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 full council meets in public ten times a year. There are additional monthly planning meetings where other council business may also be discussed.  The 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.

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.
