Have You Considered Standing as a Parish Councillor ? 

Thursday 3rd May 2018 is Election Day, when a new Parish Council will be formed.  If you are interested in making a difference to your local community then why not consider standing as a Parish Councillor?  This is a challenging and rewarding role that will enable you to:

  • Become the voice of your community

  • Help to shape your neighbourhood

  • Make decisions on a range of local issues people really care about

  • Decide how local money is spent to improve your community

  • Influence local service delivery


    Abbotsley Parish Council is served by 7 councillors who are elected by the public to serve for a term of four years.  The main requirement of a Councillor is to attend Parish Council meetings which take place on the second Thursday each month in the Village Hall and usually last for no more than 2 hours.  There is also an Annual Parish meeting held in April that you will also be asked to attend.

    The Parish Council is the most local tier of local government.  It has limited power but a reasonable amount of influence, as the District and County Councils consult with the Parish Council on a wide range of matters, including planning applications.  The Parish Council seeks the views and comments of residents to enable decisions and recommendations to be reached on behalf of the local community.

    Abbotsley Parish Council is directly responsible for managing the annual precept and its duties include maintaining the playing field, village green, and street lights, whilst facilitating community services such as Speedwatch and access to the community defibrillator.

    Please contact the Parish Clerk (email clerk@abbotsleypc.org or telephone 07588 267140) if you would like further information on whether you are eligible to stand, or if you would like to know more about the role and responsibilities of a Parish Councillor.   You are welcome to speak to current Councillors too, who are more than happy to share their experiences with you.  You will need to complete a Nomination Pack should you decide to stand.  The packs are available from the Parish Clerk or you can contact the Returning Officer, Joanne Lancaster, at Huntingdon District Council for election information and Nomination Packs.

  • The deadline for the receipt of nominations by HDC is 4pm on Friday 6th April 2018.
