About Ivinghoe Parish Council
Ivinghoe Parish Council currently consists of seven councillors and the Council is supported by a Clerk who is employed by the Council.
The Council has powers laid out in the Local Government Act 1972 and other legislation. Parish Councils have an overall responsibility for the well-being of a local community. There are many services that they may provide but Ivinghoe Parish Council is currently responsible for maintaining and providing the following services:
- The Lawn
- Dog waste bins/litter bins
- Street lighting
- Traffic calming measures
We do not work alone but deliver these services in conjunction with Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) and Buckinghamshire County Council.
The Council meets once a month. At these meetings councillors make decision on the work and direction of the council. As an elected body we are responsible to you, the people that we represent and the best way to find out what we do is to attend a council meeting.
Ivinghoe Parish Council meets on the first Tuesday of every month. There may be exceptions to this rule, for example, when special public holidays interrupt this schedule. To be sure, dates are listed here, or check the Parish Council notice boards, there is one on the outside wall of Ivinghoe Town Hall and one just outside Brookmead School Gates on the Marsworth Road.
Council meetings are currently being held in two locations. Ten meetings a year are held in the The Old School Hub, High Street, Ivinghoe and two meetings are held in Ivinghoe Aston Village Hall.
