Orcop Parish Council

Your Parish council = The closest tier of government to you.

The voice of local people.



The Orcop Parish QUESTIONNAIRES have been returned and the results will be analysed by our Planning Consultant, BUT there is still time to send back your completed Questionnaire. We need as many replies as possible.

A Presentation will be arranged in the early summer, to which we will invite all residents.

Lots of information will be available but we also want your questions and comments. As advised previously, there will be a Referendum to approve the NDP and so we need your input along the way to ensure this legal document represents the views of the whole Parish correctly.

If you have not already returned your Questionnaire and would like to submit one, please post as soon as possible or contact Mark Hearne, Orcop Parish Clerk, tel: 01981 251887 clerk@orcopparishcouncil.org

Parish Councils

Parish councils have existed since medieval times, when they settled local disputes and were in charge of agriculture and land management.

They have changed over the last 1000 years into the modern constitution, which was created in 1896.
