Boundary Commission - Review of Consituency Boundaries

The Boundary Commission for England is holding an independent review of all constituency boundaries in England, and invites you to have your say on its proposals. Go to to view the proposed new constituencies for your area and share your views before the secondary consultation closes on 4 April. You can also speak at a public hearing in your region - find your nearest hearing and book your attendance at bcepublichearings. The 2023 Boundary Review will rebalance the number of electors in each constituency, and the number of constituencies in England will increase to 543. Follow @BCEReviews to keep updated.

Kilham Hall Car Park Update

It has been agreed that the car park will remain open for park users, however as Kilham Hall is open again, when the hall is in use it will be for the hirers use (and their guests) only.  The car park will open from 9am until 6pm each day, 7 days per week April to October.  This situation will be reviewed at each parish council meeting. 

We ask that you please take care when manoeuvring around the car park and drive at a maximum speed of 5mph. Users are asked to vacate the car park by 6pm to allow for the gates to be locked.


In line with government guidelines and DMBC's decison to reopen playgrounds the children's playground and items of equipment at Kilham Hall Park are now open. Please adhere to the guidance contained within the notices in order to protect the health and welfare of all users of the park.
