Madingley Parish Council consists of 4-5 councillors in a voluntary role who met bi-monthly on the 3rd Thursday in January, March, May, July, September and November. The Council has a part time clerk who also has the role of Responsible Financial Officer.
Madingley is a small although proactive parish council. There are a variety of powers and duties that a Parish Council has but must only use those that are relevant to their community. Parish Councillors are the closest level to the community and represent the people living in the local community and plenty of works are carried out by volunteers for the benefit of the community with no financial rewards.
