The Parish Council
The Parish Council owns Sotterley Chapel (which has been restored by the Sotterley Chapel Preservation Trust) and the Chapel Cemetery.
We have a licence to manage and use Shadingfield Playing Field.
We own the bus shelter on London Road.
We are consulted by East Suffolk District Council (from the 1st April 2019 WDC and Suffolk Coastal will be abolished and merging to form a new Council, East Suffolk Council, covering the same geographical area) and Suffolk County Council (and other organisations) on a range of issues affecting the four parishes.
If residents raise an issue with us we pursue it with whatever organisation is responsible.
