The Long Melford Parish Council provides a number of the services that cannot be delivered by either the County Council or District Council. For instance, there are large areas of the village where the street lighting is provided by the Parish Council. The Parish Council is also responsible for the car park next to the Old School building, the public toilets situated at the top of Melford Green and in Cordell Road, and the cemetery facilities at the burial grounds around the Holy Trinity Church.
The Parish Council is the leaseholder for the Melford Country Park at Rodbridge, which is managed on its behalf by Long Melford Open Spaces (LMOS).
It should be noted that the allotments located in the village are owned and controlled by the Hyde Parker Estate, and not the Parish Council. Please direct any enquiries regarding the allotments to their manager, Mr Clive Albon, who can be contacted on Tel. 01787 371413.
