The Council

Loders Parish Council is the level of elected government that is closest to the community. Being close to the community, Loders Parish Councillors can be the first place people will go with concerns or ideas. For this reason, they play a vital part in village life, making decisions on behalf of the people in the parish.

Loders Parish Council strive to make Loders Parish a better place to live, work and visit by representing the local community, delivering services to meet local needs and striving to improve quality of life and community well being.  Loders Parish Council welcomes feedback from the parish and details of how to contact the Clerk and Councillors can be found on this website using the links provided.

The Parish Council consists of 10 Councillors who serve for a four year term although the first term of office for the new unitary authority 'Dorset Council' is five years from May 2019 to May 2024.  All Councillors are voluntary and receive no payment.  The Clerk works part time from home and can be contacted by mail, email or telephone.  Currently the Parish Council has two vacancies - if you are interested in becoming a Councillor, contact the Clerk.

Council Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month except August and December when no meeting takes place.  Meetings are held on alternate months in the Committee Room at Loders Village Hall or at Uploders Methodist Chapel.  Meetings commence at 7.00pm unless otherwise stated and members of the public are welcome to attend.
