Make A Change - Become A Councillor

 

What do councillors do?

Local councillors are the unsung heroes of their community who invest time in local projects and issues to the benefit of residents and the neighbourhood. Councillors attend to local needs of residents, local groups and businesses, make decisions on local services, collaborate with district and borough councils to adhere to local needs, and progress vital projects to invest in the future of the community.

 

What do councils do?

Councils lead on community services such as allotments, footpaths, public seating and litter bins, but also larger projects such as the running of local transport,
leisure services, youth services and climate change initiatives. These activities are funded by a local tax, called a precept which is determined by the council.

 

How long does it take?

The Local Councillor Census Survey found that councillors put aside up to three hours a week for council work. Council work often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking to local groups and bodies on behalf of the council. Speaking to an existing member on your local council will gigve you a better idea of the commitment because it can vary dramatically.

 

Can I stand for election?

You must be:
• A British citizen, or a citizen of the Commonwealth, or the European Union
• 18 years of age or older
• Live in an area that is served by a local council

 

How can I get involved?

Contact the Parish Clerk by telephone or by using our Contact Form

Services

 

Allotments

The allotments in Piddington and Piddington Green have now been leased to the Parish Council by Bucks County Council and we have gradually improved the general appearance of this section of the Parish.

In general the allotments are maintained to a very high standard and much of the produce finds its way to the Annual Show which takes place every August/September in the Village Hall.

As a legally constituted body we are obliged to have an Allotment Tenancy Agreement & Rules. This document is now available and can be found in the Archives.

 

Recreation Ground

The Recreation Ground in Piddington has recently been refurbished and some new equipment installed.

In addition to the small adventure playground with its rope climbling frame and slide there's a bouncing animal and two sizes of swings for older children and toddlers.

Over the far side of the recreation ground there is a small 5-a-side football pitch.

Sandwiched between the two areas is a ball wall with facilities for football, cricket and basketball/netball.

We haven't forgotten the grown-up's either. A picnic bench provides a welcome refuge whilst watching the youngsters have fun.

A new piece of play equipment for the younger children was purchased at a cost of £6,400. Red Kite Housing contributed £3000 towards this project and the Parish Council paid the remainder.

The new equipment seems to have been well received but we welcome your comments.
