Vacancies for 2 Parish Councillors

Due to the recent resignations of two Parish Councillors - Mr. Rory Gleeson and Ms. Lizzie Parr, two Councillor vacancies now exist on the Council.

Anyone interested in taking on the role of a parish councillor should contact the Parish Clerk, Mrs. Louise Johnson for further information on the role and responsibilities of a councillor and information as to how to apply for the vacancy.


Resignations of Rory Gleeson and Lizzie Parr as the District Councillors for Elsenham and Henham

Due to ongoing personal commitments, Rory Gleeson recently tendered his resignation as the District Councillor for Elsenham and Henham. As a result of his resignation, a by-election is to be held on Thursday, 16th February 2017. As usual, the Memorial Hall will be the Polling Station for residents of Elsenham.

Councillor Lizzie Parr has recently, also tended her resignation from the District Council, effective from 9th January.  This second vacancy may also bring about a further by-election, the precise date of which is unknown at present.



Code of Conduct 

Pursuant with the requirements of the Localism Act 2011, Elsenham Parish Council at its meeting held on Monday, 2nd July resolved to adopt a new Code of Conduct with effect from that date. A copy of the Code may be obtained by applying to the Parish Council Clerk (Mrs. Louise Johnson) or by going the the Code of Conduct page on this site and downloading the document.



 Village Inspections

Members of the Parish Council carry out an inspection of the Village periodically in order to identify problems and faults which require attention and repair and this information is passed on the the relevant authority responsible - e.g. Essex County Council Highways Dept., Uttlesford District Council, or the relevant public utilities company.

However, if members if the public do spot a problem, the problem can be reported directly to the relevant authority, or if unsure of who to talk to the Parish Clerk (or one of the Parish Councillors).
