Meeting dates for the Council

Annual Meeting 7th May at 6:00pm in Bainton Reading Room.
We wish to invite local organisations to be represented.

Your currently elected councilors are:

Councillors:

Richard Harris (Vice Chairman)
Nicola Clough
Judith Morrice

Stonycroft, Millstone Lane, Barnack, PE9 3ET
Telephone: 07944 054546

Your Council usually meets on the first Tuesday of every month in the Reading Room in Bainton, and all local residents are always welcome to attend the meetings which start at 7:30 unless there are pressing requirements for an early start. The agenda for each meeting is posted in advance on the notice boards in Bainton and Ashton. If you have items of interest / concern please contact any councillor who will ask the clerk to add them to the agenda for the next meeting


The job of the council is to represent the interests of the whole community. Discovering the needs of different groups in the community is an important part of our role, and our regular meetings are a key way in which we can determine your needs. We are governed by a code of conduct which means we will carry out our duty with selflessness, honest and integrity. We will be objective in the decisions we make, and accountable to you for our actions and the manner in which we carry out our responsibilities

Our local Peterborough City Councillor – David Over – usually attends all our Parish Council meetings

The Parish Council is particularly active in supporting and preserving the village aspects of Bainton and Ashton. This is mainly done by commenting on planning applications to Peterborough City Council Planning Dept, making representations to the council and other bodies to maintain highway safety, road and pavement maintenance and repairs, managing applications for grants to improve the area, and organizing and promoting local restoration / reclamation activities. The Council is also responsible for some local maintenance around the village.

The Council seeks to promote the village community spirit within Ashton and Bainton villages and has been responsible for a number of initiatives over the years which draw out this spirit from the local residents – litter collection, bulb planting etc.
