NB Because of the coronavirus pandemic, its meetings are being held remotely via Zoom:
The parish of Hatley was formed in 1957 when the parishes of Hatley St George and East Hatley were united.
Hatley Parish Council was established on 5th July 1973 by a mandate drawn from the Local Government Act of 1933 which ‘provided that for every rural parish there shall be a Parish Meeting’… [and] in the case of a parish having a population of less than 200, the County Council may establish a Parish Council for that parish.
The mandate doesn’t give the population in 1973 – the 2011 census puts it at 181 people in 77 households.
Hatley Parish Council comprises five members – all elected by public vote on 3rd May 2018: a chairman, vice-chairman and three others – and a clerk, seen above during the 2019 Annual Meetings in Hatley Village Hall: L/R Nicola Jenkins, Harold Nickerson, Micky Astor (Deputy Chairman), Alan Pinney, Margot Eagle (Chairman) and Kim Wilde (Clerk).

What we do
We are responsible for making decisions relevant to the parish and also setting the annual precept. We are also responsible for the playing area / equipment in Hatley St George, the village hall and the village speed monitoring sign.
As sub-committees of the Parish Council, Hatley Village Association and the Hatley Website Group report to us at our regular meetings. We also receive reports about Hatley St George church, St Denis’ church East Hatley and from the St Denis’ church Local Nature Reserve Management Group.
We also comment on Hatley planning applications – they are routinely discussed at our meetings and our recommendations can be influential with the officers and Planning Committee at South Cambs District Council.
We organise an annual litter pick each March along the verges of the Croydon / Gamlingay road within the parish and we are very keen on making sensible enhancements for the village – such as the speed monitoring sign.
Hatley Parish Council holds six scheduled meetings a year on the third Tuesday of January, March, April (the Annual Parish Meeting), May (the Annual General Meeting), July and October; other ‘extraordinary’ meetings (usually concerned with a planning application) are held as necessary.
An Ordinary Meeting will be held on Tuesday, 20th October at 7.30 pm – it is hoped it can be held in the Village Hall, if not it will be held remotely via Zoom.
Meetings normally begin at 7.30 pm in Hatley Village Hall – but due to the social restrictions currently in place as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, its meetings are being held remotely using Zoom video technology.
