Hatley Parish Council

Hatley Parish Council is our most local authority – it is the first tier of local government*.

  • Its next scheduled meeting is an Ordinary Meeting on Tuesday, 17th January at 7.30 pm in Hatley Village Hall.
  • Do go!  It is an opportunity to see the council in action, ask questions and meet your councillors – Micky Astor (chairman), Alan Pinney (vice-chairman), Carole Cooper, Harold Nickerson and new councillor Paul Kraus, who joined the council at the October 2022 meeting.

The council is responsible for making decisions relevant to the parish and also setting the annual precept. It is also responsible for the village hall, the village speed monitoring sign, the defibrillator and the playing area / equipment in Hatley St George.

It has the first official say in any Hatley planning applications – they are routinely discussed at its meetings, as are our two churches and graveyards and other initiatives such as Neighbourhood Watch and local action on climate change.

In addition, it organises litter picks along the verges of the Croydon / Gamlingay road within the parish and is keen on making sensible enhancements for the village.

The Hatley Village Association (HVA) operates under the auspices of the Parish Council to raise funds for Hatley community projects, including the village hall, Hatley St George church and the playing field in Hatley St George.

* The second tier of local government is South Cambs District Council, then Cambridgeshire County Council and, now at the top, the Combined Authority for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
