The Council

Councillor contacts, agenda, finance, planning and minutes


Due to Storm Ciarán expected to spread east on Wednesday night and Thursday bringing heavy rain and strong winds across much of the area, the decision has been made to suspend the mobile service on Thursday 02/11/2023 due to H&S concerns.

We will have communications of this posted on our website and on social media with a view to have signage in place Wednesday advising residents.

Birdham Village Drop-In
    hosted by Birdham Parish Council
Thank you to all those who "dropped in" and shared their concerns and projects for Birdham.

Once a year your Parish Councillors host an event to which you are warmly invited. Not just for the free coffee, tea and cake, but to find out what is going on in the village. It is an informal opportunity to meet up with your fellow Birdham-ites and talk with local folk who represent you. There are a lot of different clubs and initiatives going on in the village, and we hope to bring many of these together in a “one-stop shop”.

10am to Midday, Saturday 28th October 2023
Birdham Village Hall (next to the playground)

PLEASE COME AND JOIN US, even just for ten minutes! Everyone is welcome.

Subjects for discussion/chat can include:

·      Local groups and clubs (many will be present on the day)

·      Activities/facilities for children and young people

·      Ideas for new community uses for the Village Hall eg Repair Café, Internet Café, Tea and Tech (help with technology glitches), Table Tennis club

·      Local transport

·      Green initiatives eg recycling, rewilding, improving footpaths/cycling routes

·      … and any other topics you wish to raise.

We’d love to hear your ideas and concerns, as well as giving you the chance to meet your local Councillors, learn about local volunteering opportunities, and generally commune with people in your community.

Welcome to the Birdham Parish Council Website…

The village of Birdham is a small and welcoming community just south of the historic town of Chichester in West Sussex. This website aims to help our residents and visitors to learn about the village, the work of our Parish Council and to provide information about the businesses and people that make Birdham special...

The Council meets on the second Wednesday of each month, (except in August when there is no meeting), at 7pm, at the Village Hall and simultaneously on a remote video platform.  If you would like to join a meeting remotely please contact the clerk.

The Village Hall

The Village Hall was opened in 1954 on land sold to the Parish Council in 1951 by William Farne and his sister Mildred Adams. The Hall was completely repaired and refurbished in 2005/6. A Scout Hut was added in 1964.
