Welcome to the Parish Council website.
This website is designed to be used by the Parish Council and also by Parishioners to keep up to date with news and views in the village.
About the Parish Council
Council activities fall into three main categories: representing the local community, delivering services to meet local needs, and improving quality of life and community well-being.
The Parish Council represents members of the community to make all kinds of decisions on issues that affect the local community. Probably the most common topics that the Parish Council gets involved with are reviewing and commenting on planning matters (they are statutory consultees), crime prevention matters, managing community spaces (the Village Green and Cameley Playing Field) and influencing the delivery of better services and facilities.
The Parish Council also provides and delivers a variety of services including:
- Employment of two Village Operatives
The Village Operatives carry out a range of tasks to keep Temple Cloud looking its best (pavement sweeping, grass cutting, litter picking, playground checks, keeping the public footpaths clear and accessible and supporting the work of Temple Cloud in Bloom).
- Monitoring public rights of way and highways.
- Managing and administering Temple Cloud Village Hall and Cameley Playing Fields including the Playground.
A new Parish Council was formed in May 2019 following the Local Government Elections. The Council term is four years and at present, there are vacancies which may be filled by co-option. If you would like to find out more please get in touch or why not come along to one of our meetings – residents are always welcome and encouraged to attend.
