Feering Parish Council consists of 9 Councillors, residents of Feering who volunteer their time to look after and improve the local area, supported by a part time Parish Clerk. The Council own Feering Community Centre, Rye Mill Lane Playing Field and a piece of land on Coggeshall Road known locally as Taylors.
Feering is a lovely village with all the benefits of a rural, yet strategic location, enabling easy travel to Colchester, Chelmsford and London. Its ancient centre, located around All Saints Church, is listed in the Domesday Book although the village has grown considerably since medieval days and now stretches from the river Blackwater at the border with Kelvedon in the south, to the A120 in the north, and is home to some 1900 people. While still retaining its small, local and friendly village feel, Feering has a surprisingly large number of amenities including three thriving pubs, a country house hotel with gym and tennis centre, two churches and a well-regarded primary school.

What do councillors do?
Local councillors are the champions of their community who invest time in local projects and issues to the benefit of residents and the neighbourhood. Councillors attend to local needs of residents, local groups and businesses, make decisions on local services, collaborate with district and borough councils to adhere to local needs, and progress vital projects to invest in the future of the community.
How long does it take?
