This Members' page provides a list of parish councillors who are elected every 4 years.  Lynemouth Parish Council has 12 council 'seats' serving an electorate of 1184 people. Councillors' home addresses, email addresses, and telephone numbers have been removed from the website following the Government's review of intimidation in public life and the introduction of changes to the rules which suggested that care should be taken to avoid disclosing such addresses.

The main point of contact with the Parish Council is through the Parish Clerk who can be contacted on most week days (Mon-Fri) during normal office hours (between 9am and 5pm) on telephone number: 07541 774763 (message service available), or via e-mail at: lynemouthparishcouncil@hotmail.co.uk
