Arrington Parish Council

Chairman's Address

As Chairman of the Arrington Parish Council, I would like to welcome you to the Arrington website.

The Parish Council consists of local residents who take an active interest in village matters and want to contribute to make the village a safer,  happier and interesting place. However we cannot work in isolation and would appreciate your views and support in making the village an enjoyable place to live in. During the past 12 months much work has been done to retain the bus service, improve the village garden and children’s play area, and liaise with the necessary agencies to reduce traffic speed throughout the village.

We work in conjunction with South Cambs District Council , the Village Church ,Village Hall , The Hardwick Arms Inn and Wimpole Hall in order to coordinate activity and I am looking forward to continued cooperation in the coming months.

The Parish council meetings are open to the public and we really do appreciate your contribution. Attendance by residents at our regular Parish Council meetings is not compulsory but warmly welcomed!

Full details of our meetings are displayed on our new village notice Boards.

Reporting flooding problems

Officers from risk management authorities are not in a position to know about every flooding incident that occurs, particularly those which do not lead to flooding within properties. However records of flood incidents which affected roads or entered the boundaries of properties are important to record. They can indicate that there has been extensive flooding from relatively regular rainfall events which would warn that the properties are at risk in more extreme rainfall events. This information is crucial in building up cases for flood defence and flood resilience schemes which will require strong evidence of the flood risk to properties. Flooding from overflowing drains and gullies can be reported to highways online: www2.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/HighwaysReports/Highways/ReportProblem1.aspx

Department for Communities and Local Government - Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities.

This Code is issued to meet the Government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability. Transparency gives local people the tools and information they need to hold local public bodies to account.

The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 sets out a new audit framework for local public authorities which are currently covered by the Audit Commission regime. Under the new audit framework smaller authorities, including parish councils, internal drainage boards, charter trustees and port health authorities, with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 will be exempt from routine external audit. In place of routine audit, these smaller authorities will be subject to the new transparency requirements laid out in this Code. This will enable local electors and ratepayers to access relevant information about the authorities’ accounts and governance.

The Government considers that publication of the items in this Code will provide the local electorate and ratepayers with a clear picture of the activities of these smaller authorities. Most of this information is already produced by the majority of smaller authorities with a turnover not exceeding £25,000, and the Government therefore considers that compliance with this Code will not place a significant burden on these authorities.

A full copy of the code can be found HERE and the list of published items can be found HERE.

Last year an Arrington Village Questionnaire was circulated to all households to obtain your views on  how we could make  the village a more enjoyable and safer place to live in and to also seek your priorities to shape our Village Plan.

Although the questionnaire response rate was low, we have compiled a list of your priorities and we are now seeking volunteers to take the information forward and use it to create our plan.

The Plan  will reinforce our  goals for the future and will help prioritise the Parish Council spending plans.

Additionally, the Plan  will enable us to apply for funding for related projects for the Village, Church and Village Hall.  

If you are interested, please make contact via this website or feel free to contact your Parish Councillors directly.
