Parishes

There are 40 parishes in the Blackdown Hills, all with a strong sense of community and effective parish councils.

Blackdown Hills Parish Network 

The network provides a mechanism for collaboration on common issues, to have a collective voice and to share information and resources. 

Priorities for the network stem from the Blackdown Hills Community Plan (2011). The plan helps parish councils in the Blackdown Hills to address common issues such as broadband provision, local transport and  severe weather.
