The Parish Council is made up of 10 elected residents who serve a four year term. It is supported by a part time qualified Clerk. We also have input from our Central Bedfordshire Ward Councillors.
The Parish Council is responsible for a small number of local services which can include roadside seats, play equipment, the recreation ground, the closed church yard, some street lights, the Lock-up & Pound. In addition, the Parish Council liaises with Central Bedfordshire Council on matters that are their responsibility such as highways & rights of way. Central Bedfordshire Council also invites the Parish Council to comment on matters that might affect the lives and well-being of residents, & this includes planning applications.
The Parish Council meets ten times a year, typically on the last Tuesday of the month. The date's may vary as we try not to have big intervals between meetings. Full details of meetings are in the "meeting dates" page on the menu.
There is always 10 minutes set aside at the beginning of Parish Council meetings for public questions & comments about agenda items, & this is the section of the meeting specifically set aside for the public to participate in. The public are very welcome to stay & observe the remainder of the meeting.
Agenda's & minutes are published in "Documents" area on the menu.
