​WELCOME to Enmore Parish Council Website.

Enmore, as a settlement, appears in the Domesday Book and its name derivation is the Hen Moor. The modern village of Enmore lies 2 miles to the west of Bridgwater in the County of Somerset and on the foothills of the Quantock ridge. Close by is the reservoir of Durleigh and within the Parish a nationally acknowledged golf course. The village is in two parts with the original village settled around the ancient church of St. Michael & All Angels (higher Enmore) and a long linear settlement (lower Enmore) that follows the road that leads from Bridgwater to Taunton. On the main road are two public houses - the Enmore Inn and The Tynte Arms, named after a former owner of the nearby Halswell Park estate. The village is served by a thriving village hall hosting a range of community events.

The Parish Council consists of six elected Councillors supported by a Clerk to the Council. The Council meets bi-monthly in the Enmore Memorial Hall and works closely with other agencies such as Somerset Council, Avon and Somerset Police, Wessex Water, the Environment Agency and Quantock Hills National Landscape (formerly AONB). The Parish Council is the lowest tier of local government and has little statutory powers but acts as a consultee and monitor over planning, highways and local issues. The Parish Council also organises keeping communal areas clean and tidy, is making provision to manage a new cemetery and offers support to community organisations.
