Welcome to Bainton & Ashton Parish Council Website

We welcome Anita Phillips and Pete Charlton as members of Bainton & Ashton Parish Council.  Susie Lucas was elected as Chair of the Council at the meeting of 2nd July 2019.

Please use the “Contact” button above to see Councillor contact details and the new roles assigned at the meeting of 2nd July 2019.

We hope residents will find this web site informative and useful as a source of information for matters relevant to the operations of the local council and the running of the village.

Parish Councils are not connected, as many think, to the church. They are the lowest level of Government providing local contact with residents and liaising with district and city councils.

The members of the council are volunteers and unpaid but still perform a valuable and important role in the running of villages and communities.

Not all communities or villages are part of a parish, although under English law any community may apply to become a parish.

Elsewhere in the web site the various powers and duties of the Parish Council are described for your information.
