Haddenham Parish Council is inviting applicants to join the Council and thereby contribute on a voluntary basis to our most local tier of administration and the first tier of democratic local government.
Parish Councils were set up in 1894 by an Act of Parliament with the authority to raise money through taxation (the precept) and a range of powers to spend public money.
Our Parish Council covers the village of Haddenham and the surrounding countryside. It consists of 11 members and a Parish Clerk. The Councillors remain in office for four years. At the Annual General Meeting of the Parish Council, which is held in May, the Chairman and Vice Chairman are elected as is the chairman of each of the committees.
The council is a corporate body with a legal existence of its own quite separate from that of its members. The decisions of the parish council are the responsibility of the whole body.
The Clerk to the Parish Council, Mrs. Gilbert, is the proper officer in law, employed by the council and is also the responsible financial officer.
The formal invitation is attached (see PDF), together with information about how councillors are elected.
For further information, please contact the Clerk, Sue Gilbert:
