Parish Councillors and Parish Clerk

We have a full complement of seven Parish Councillors at 31st May 2024, as listed below. Please note that we will be adding new registers of interest over the summer and we aim to introduce @stmichael email addresses soon. In the meantime, our Parish Clerk should normally be your first point of contact for all enquiries. Messages will be forwarded to individual Councillors if requested or as appropriate.

Parish Councillors

As with all parish councils across Hertfordshire, the St Michael Parish Councillors’ terms of office will expire in early May 2027, when local elections will be held. They may choose to stand again, alongside any new candidates coming forward.
