A brief description about Little Paxton Parish Council

Caring for our community

Little Paxton Parish Council looks after the amenities of the village including the Queen Elizabeth II Playing Field, Children's Play Park, Allotments and Little Paxton Lawn Cemetery.

 

The Parish Council is the first stage of the planning process and Councillors consider all planning applications made for work in the Village.

All telephone calls to the Clerk are recorded for training & monitoring purposes.

The correspondence address for the Parish Council is not a public office and all meetings with the Clerk are to be arranged by appointment.

The Council makes grants to local organisations and applications should be made to the Clerk in September each year to allow consideration when the Council sets its budget for the coming year. However, applications will be accepted at other times throughout the year.

The Full Council meets on the first and third Thursday of each month (except August) at 7.30pm in the rear Committee Room at the Village Hall. Members of the public & press are welcome to attend all Council meetings. Each Full Council Meeting Agenda has a 15 minute Public Forum for members of the public to raise issues with the Council relating to items of Council business which are for debate on the Agenda.

Before the start of Full Council meetings, there will be an opportunity for members of the public to raise issues with the Clerk as items for future meeting agendas.

Notices of meetings and their minutes appear on Village Notice Boards. Agendas are also available on the website.

Copies of Councillors' Register of Interest Forms are available on the Huntingdonshire District Council's website and on this website in the Council Document Library
