Shincliffe Parish Council is made up of 7 councillors, who are all volunteers, and a Parish Clerk who provides independent, objective and professional advice to ensure that the council conducts its business properly and enables the smooth running of Parish affairs.

The purpose of a Parish Council is to represent the community on issues and aspirations that are held important, to deliver services to meet local needs and to enhance community well-being. As a Parish council, we are committed to providing an excellent service to the community; we continue to welcome and increase community engagement and strive to provide value for money.
