Colby & Banningham Parish Council serves the two villages of Colby & Banningham. There are 7 Councillors, all of whom represent the whole area – no wards. On behalf of the parish, the Council owns the Jubilee Hall, Banningham, Banningham Village Green, the Playing Field at Bridge Road Colby, 3 allotments and a piece of arable land behind, on Colby Road, and contributes to the maintenance of Colby and Banningham Churchyards as burial grounds. The Council was awarded Quality Parish Council status in June 2008 and successfully re-accredited in 2012.
As part of the Transparency Code legislation, the Council is now required to publish papers that will be discussed at Council meetings.
