Headley Parish Council – What we do


Headley Parish Council is the third tier of local government serving the local needs of Headley's residents. It is a statutory local authority set up under the Local Government Act 1972. It is comprised of 12 unpaid Parish Councillors who serve a four-year term of office. It also employs a part-time Clerk and Executive Officer, a Responsible Financial Officer, and a Playground Monitor.
The council’s paid officers organise meetings and help to carry out the council's decisions. The Clerk and Executive Officer does not vote or make decisions; that is the role of the councillors. Every year the council elects one of the councillors to the role of Chairman and one to be Vice Chairman of the council. Decisions are made by consensus at Full Council meetings and Committee meetings.

The first point of contact to the Council is the Clerk and Executive Officer who can be contacted on 01428 713132 or e mail at clerk@headleyparish.com.

The Parish Council is financed primarily by a precept on all residential properties within the Parish. The Parish Council is responsible for public open spaces, such as Headley Village Green, Standford Green, and the Playing Fields on Mill Lane and its extensive sport facilities. It also manages play areas; Arford Common; a piece of land in Standford; Headley Allotments, and a number of small pockets of land including Saunders Green, the grassed area at the entrance to Pound Close known as The Pound, and the land linking the Village Green to Long Cross Hill.
The Parish Council works collaboratively with a wide range of groups and organisations both within and outside the Parish. All council meetings are open to the general public and the press except in very exceptional circumstances. The time and place of meetings is advertised beforehand on this Parish website and Parish noticeboards.
