As usual, there has been no Parish Council meeting in August, so the next meeting will be held in the Parish Rooms, Hill Top Road, CW8 3RA, at 7:30pm on Monday 4. September. The Agenda can be downloaded from here.
Residents of Acton Bridge are reminded that they are always welcome to attend Parish Council meetings, to raise concerns or simply to observe our proceedings. Matters of urgency can be brought to the attention of the Clerk or any Councillor, or by e-mail to the address at the bottom of this page (shown as an image to reduce spam).

Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) :
We are awaiting further dates for PCSO Surgeries, normally on Saturdays in the Parish Rooms. Residents with any issues or topics on Police matters are invited to raise them with the PCSO - no appointment is necessary.

Your Parish Council has received a generous Award from the Police and Crime Commissioner's Safer Communities Fund, which will be put towards the cost of the Interactive Speed Warning Sign. Click on the image to download a PDF file of the Award.

Parish Councils are the lowest tier of Local Government in England, and are therefore generally the closest to the people they represent. To quote from Judge John Prophet :
"The Parish Council is one of the great survivors in our governmental institutions. It was the only council not abolished under the Local Government Act 1972 and has now been in continuous existence for over one hundred years. Long may it prosper as an admirable example of the benefits to our governmental system of local decision-making by elected representatives of the people". ["The Parish Councillor's Guide" (Shaw & Sons, ISBN 0 7219 0515 3)]

Acton Bridge Parish Council consists of eight Councillors and a Clerk. We usually meet at 7:30pm on the first Monday of each month in the Parish Rooms, to discuss planning applications, local concerns and items of interest to the community. You can see a calendar of forthcoming Meetings here.

Members of the public are welcome to attend Parish Council meetings, but are not generally permitted to speak except during a special agenda item set aside for the purpose before the main business begins. Visitors' active participation is, however, encouraged during the Annual General Meeting, when the Councillors will do their best to answer questions and discuss matters of concern to local residents. Most meetings are attended by one or more of our three Local Government Representatives. Following the local government reorganisation in April 2009, Vale Royal Borough Council was abolished and we became part of Cheshire West and Chester Council. Since the May 2011 elections we are in a new "Weaver and Cuddington" Ward, which consists of four Parishes - Acton Bridge, Cuddington (which includes the community of Sandiway), Dutton, and Weaverham. You can read more on our Boundary page.
