Every four years members of the Parish Council are elected by those registered to vote in the parish. All parish councillors are volunteers and receive no payment for serving on the council.
Bodicote Parish Council works to represent the community by delivering necessary services such as grass cutting, the provision of rubbish and dog bins, litter picking, provision of benches and the siting of any necessary signage. We also take care of the cemetery in Wykham Lane making sure that it remains a peaceful and pleasant area to visit. The Parish Council is consulted on all planning applications within the parish and our aim is to maintain and improve our lovely communal areas for everyone to enjoy.
We regularly publish and deliver a newsletter which keeps residents up-to-date with the latest community, planning, news and events. You can find copies of previous newsletters to read on-screen here.
The Parish Council is funded via your council tax and annually sets its own ‘precept’. This is the portion of your council tax that is used by the Parish Council to continue its work in the village and is clearly itemised on your annual council tax bill.
Parish Councils are required to hold an Annual Meeting – usually in May – and at least three other meetings a year. Bodicote Parish Council holds a meeting on the third Wednesday of every month, apart from August, and members of the public are welcome to attend and are given the opportunity to address the council regarding any issues relating to the parish. You can find the dates and times of all meetings here.
We look forward to meeting residents and listening to your suggestions and concerns.
