Hucclecote Parish Council exists to help local residents participate in the local community, and to provide a forum for their views on how the area should develop in the future.
This website aims to be a ‘one stop shop’ for local residents, as it provides up to date information about Hucclecote events, and local weather, news and traffic alerts.
We also welcome contributions to this website – so if you’ve discovered an interesting walk submit details and pictures and it will appear as one of our Galleries. If you want to find out about local planning applications, or comment on them this site makes it very straight forward too. And if you want to get involved in the council or attend one of our meetings this site explains how to do it.
Please join our mailing list by scrolling to the bottom of this page and entering your details. You will then receive up to date news directly from the website.
What is a Parish Council?
Local authorities were first created by statute in 1894 and our most significant responsibility is to represent the community and serve all elements within it as we try to get the best results for everyone. As a parish council Hucclecote Parish Council is the first tier of local government and the one closest to the people.
We also have a responsibility to engage in partnership working with Tewkesbury Borough Council and Gloucestershire County Council.
Each year the Parish Council receives a share of the council tax collected by Tewkesbury Borough Council, referred to as a ‘precept’. This money is then used to improve facilities within the parish.
Details of our decisions and the councillors who make them can be found in the agendas and minutes for each meeting. Further details of our assets, financial position, and policies are also available on this site.
