Bradpole Civil Parish

Welcome, this is the Bradpole Parish Council Community Website.

Autumn Leaves along the Bradpole ~ Bridport Trail

Bradpole Parish Council manages this website to enable readers to be kept up to date with developments and issues facing the Civil Parish of Bradpole, its Council, and its residents.

Do you know the difference between a Civil Parish and an Ecclesiastical Parish? Our Parish Council page will explain this in more detail.

Bradpole Parish Council represents the views of local people, negotiates and influences the decisions which directly affect the community and aims to improve the quality of life for everyone living and working in the area.

We maintain this community website as a relevant source of factual information by regular updating.

BRADPOLE BUZZWORD

We realise that not all of our residents are able to access either this website or our social media platforms. We therefore produce a quarterly news sheet which is posted on the many notice boards around the parish.

If you have a friend or neighbour who you think would appreciate reading the current issue please download a copy.
