The role of the Parish Council

Datchworth Parish Council was formed in 1894 and is the most local level of government for the people of the Parish.   Its ten councillors are responsible for maintaining the green spaces, play areas and allotments of the parish.   As owners of the village green, Turkey Farm recreation ground and common lands the council are responsible for maintaining the vegetation on these areas.  The parish council work closely with East Herts District Council and Hertfordshire Council Council (including Highways) to ensure efficient maintenance of the village.

Meetings

Datchworth Parish Council meetings are held in the Committee Room at Datchworth Village Hall on the 2nd Monday of each month at 7.30pm.  New Year and Easter can be exceptions to this when the meeting may be moved to the 3rd Monday of the month and meetings are not held in August or December.  Residents are welcome to attend the meetings but do not have an automatic right to speak. If you wish to put a point to the meeting, please contact the Chair or Clerk of the council at least 3 days before the meeting.
