In Autumn 2006, Herstmonceux Parish Council applied for and was awarded the status of Quality Parish Council.

This is what Defra understands by a "quality parish council": -

  • is representative of, and actively engages, all parts of its community, providing vision, identity and a sense of belonging;
  • is effectively and properly managed;
  • articulates the needs and wishes of its community;
  • upholds high standards of conduct;
  • is committed to work in partnership with principal local authorities and other public service agencies;
  • works closely with voluntary groups in its community;
  • provides leadership to the community through its work on parish plans; and
  • working with its partners, acts as an information point for local services.
