Hatley Parish Council
Hatley Parish Council is our most local authority – it’s the first tier of local government*.
It is responsible for making decisions relevant to the parish and also setting the annual precept (income in non-government speak).
It is also responsible for the playing area / equipment in Hatley St George, the village hall and the village speed monitoring sign. 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.
It organises an annual litter pick each March along the verges of the Croydon / Gamlingay road within the parish and is keen on making sensible enhancements for the village.
Fundraising for the village hall delegated to Hatley Village Association (HVA), which operates under the auspices of the Parish Council – the HVA also fundraises for the church and playing field in Hatley St George.
NB Because of the coronavirus pandemic, its Annual General and Annual Parish Meetings was held remotely on 19th May; it is likely meetings in the immediate future will also be ‘Zoomed’:
* 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.
