Access to information
It is the intention of Herstmonceux Parish Council to publish as much information as we can online. However, some older items are only available in print.
Residents should also be aware that the Council is entitled to withhold certain information, but the Council will only do this if the information is considered to be confidential. Please check the Documents page for a list of documents currently available.
