Steep Parish Council were saddened to receive the resignation of Simon Bridger at the end of July - Simon has been a Parish Councillor for over 10-years and his valuable contribution to the work of the Council and especially in his role on the Planning Committee and as Chairman of Steep Village Hall, will be very much missed.

This means that we will be looking to recruit someone new to the Parish Council as soon as practically possible given the current restrictions due to Covid-19. The official notice of vacancy has been advertised on the parish noticeboards and the website and there has been no request for a bye-election. This means that the vacancy can be filled by co-option - please look out for details of the process to be followed on noticeboards, our website and via the Minutes of Parish Council Meetings. If the role is something that would interest you and you have time to give to your local community, or simply want to find out more about what is required, contact - jenny.hollington on

Steep Parish Council strives to ensure that its services are accessible to everyone. We have therefore made our website easier to use and more accessible for people with disabilities. Full details are given via the Accessibility Statement below left, but in brief every webpage now has an accessibility Button at the top right. This enables users to alter such things as text size and colour contrasts, to suit their circumstances.

Steep Support Network

If any Steep resident needs help during the coming months because of illness or self-isolation, there is a willing group of volunteers to assist with things such as shopping, medicine collection, dog walking and so on.

Please don't struggle on your own!
