How do I present my ideas or concerns to the Parish Council?

If possible, you might consider discussing the matter first with either the Parish Clerk or one of your Parish Councillors. They may be able to give you valuable background and support you in putting your views to the Council. Next, put your thoughts into writing as either a letter or an email to the Parish Clerk and attend next Parish Council meeting. Correspondence from residents is read out in the meeting for discussion.

How is the Parish Council elected ?

Parish Councillors are either elected members from a previous election or co-opted by its current elected members. Local elections for both District & Parish Council are scheduled for 3rd May 2018. However Whittlesford remained uncontested and will therefore not require a parish election. The next local elections for Whittlesford will be May 2022. However, should you wish to join the parish council, then please do get in touch, as vacancies often become available.
