Welcome to the Eastling Parish Council Website.
The village of Eastling is four and a half miles to the southwest of Faversham. It is set in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the slope of the North Downs in the ‘Garden of England’ county of Kent. Eastling’s Conservation Area boasts some excellent buildings and gardens, including Eastling Manor House.
Eastling Parish Council meets bi-monthly on the second Wednesday at 6.30pm in the Village Hall and all meetings are open to the public. Agendas for the meeting are posted on the village notice board outside the hall and also on this website. Each meeting includes a public participation section where residents can, at the Chairman’s discretion, address the Council for up to three minutes on any topic of concern or general interest.
There is also an Annual Parish Meeting, usually in April, at which the Council and village organisations report on their activities and plans. Local organisations and residents are also invited to raise matters of concern
Eastling Parish Council is seeking a Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator. The coordinators are a vital link between our community and the local Neighbourhood Policing teams. They receive information on local crime issues and crime prevention advice. This is a voluntary position.
The role of the coordinator is to ensure that all the relevant information is passed onto the members of the watch and there are no set rules to how this is done – email, telephone or slips through doors. It is suggested that email is the easiest though. The minimum expected is for the coordinator to pass on the crime messages , warnings and advise. In turn it is asked that all members look out for each other.
