Bottisham Parish Council has 12 members. Bottisham Parish Council exists to help you, the residents, have a point of contact for ideas and suggestions for improvements in the village.
Your Councillors are a group of volunteers who give their time freely, who work together to make decisions and produce plans that will help enhance the village and support the village’s other organisations, for the benefit of all residents. What should also be expected of us as your Council are constructive agendas, encouragement of open debate, and constant efforts to find new ways of getting people involved.
We are keen to listen to the views of others, getting broad agreement on the best way forward and being jointly responsible. We also wish to channel our enthusiasm, skills and knowledge for the benefit of the whole community of Bottisham.
Councillors are elected for four years and in this time could be taking action on many things that affect the town and the community such as:
- Advising on land which is suitable for industrial or residential development;
- Campaigning for better road safety and reducing the fear of crime;
- Providing representation at local planning enquiries;
- Raising concerns about transport services;
- Providing a liaison between other local authorities or official bodies.
- Giving a voice for the community to new and effecting local areas
