Ashampstead Parish Council is an elected body and has an overall responsibility for the well-being for our community. Its work falls into three main categories: representing the local community, delivering services to meet local needs & striving to improve quality of life in the parish.

They meet regularly, usually in the village hall, to make decisions that affect us. Attending a council meeting is the best way to find out what it does. The dates of the next meeting are on the recreational ground notice board .

Each year the Parish Council asks for a sum of money, called a ‘precept’, which is collected through your council tax. This money is used by the Parish Council to improve facilities and services for the parishioners. The Parish Council can also apply for grants and loans.

Your councilors are elected by people who live in the area and have the role of decision-making (where money should be spent, what services should be delivered and what policies should be implemented), monitoring (making sure decisions lead to efficient and effective services by keeping an eye on how well things are working) and getting involved locally.
