Parish Councillors

Tollerton has nine Parish Councillors who provide local representation for residents and the community.

Parish Councillors are all volunteers and receive no pay or allowance. We can be contacted about issues of interest of concern, planning decisions and emergency planning for Tollerton.

If you have a question about local issues, services and facilities, there are certain areas that the Parish Council is responsible for. Other areas are looked after by Rushcliffe Borough Council or Nottinghamshire County Council, you can find out which council is responsible for which area here.
