Parish Council

The job of the parish council is to consider and represent the interests of the Coates community. The council receives and manages annual funding which is raised, and distributed, through the Cotswold District Council Tax.

The parish council comprises 7 elected councillors, and a clerk. Councillors are normally elected every 4 years to represent the Parish.  The last election was held in May 2015.

The parish council meets approximately 6 times per year, and also holds an Annual Meeting for the parish. All meetings are open to the public to attend.
