Parish Councils are the first tier of local government. They deliver a range of services at a community level. There are around 10,000 parish councils in England and Wales, made up of nearly 100,000 councillors. These first-tier councillors can respond to the needs of the community - delivering the services or representation it most needs. To do this well the councillors needs to hear from the community about local issues, so please keep in touch.

Supported by funding from the Enovert Community Fund and National Lottery Heritage Fund, Sevenoaks District Council is restoring six-acres of heathland by removing introduced species of rhododendron and birch and turning over the land to expose the seeds from native heathland plants, which have laid dormant for years. This will also reduce bracken growth. These works will make the ecosystem better for plants and animals. At the same time, paths and bridleways will be opened up so ramblers, dog walkers, horse riders, cyclists and families can enjoy the Common. Work has already begun on the commons and is set to be completed in August 2020. The Bitchet Common restoration is part of the wider Sevenoaks Greensand Commons Project working across eight commons in Westerham, Sevenoaks and Seal. To find out more information and to get involved in volunteer opportunities please visit www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/bitchet
