Langham  Parish  Council







Langham, together with other outlying villages was brought into the Borough of Colchester when Local Government re-organisation took place in 1974, and Langham was paired with Boxted as a ward. Later it was paired with Dedham.


There has been a further reorganisation, resulting in fewer CBC Councillors  ... so the elections of May 2016 saw Langham as part of a 3-strong ward called Rural North.

The population of Langham is just over 1,000, with an electorate of just over 800 and elections for the Parish Council are held every four years.



Meetings are held in the Community Centre, all on Wednesdays at 7.30 pm in the Club Room and are held monthly, with the exception of August and December. Members of the Council also sit on sub committees with responsibilities for the different areas of village life.
