Parish Council elections

As residents may be aware from the parish council website and noticeboards, the parish council election for Steep was uncontested — this means that your current Parish Council remains unchanged and your duly elected councillors will continue to work hard on your behalf for the foreseeable future.

New Lengthsmen

We are pleased to announce that new Lengthsmen "Frank and Bill" have been appointed from April 2019 to work across the cluster of 8 parishes administrated by Steep Parish Council. Frank Spooner and Bill Robinson are local lads, who grew up in the area and now live in Sheet. We look forward to seeing them around our parish as they deal with such issues as ditch clearance, hedge cutting, litter picking, cleaning road signs, etc.

If residents notice any roads related issue that they think could be addressed by the Lengthsmen, please advise the Parish Clerk, Jenny, via
