Hockley is located between Rayleigh and Rochford. Too large to be a village, but too small to be called a town, Hockley's origins are lost in the mists of time. Hockley is mentioned no less than three times in the Domesday Book, and the then Hamlet of Plumberow twice. Hockley is famous for its 280-acre ancient semi natural woodland local nature reserve in the heart of Hockley. Its ecological importance is recognised and protected by its designation as a site of special scientific interest.





Welcome to Hockley Parish Council's website. If you look to the tabs on the left, you will find information about what the council is and does; I hope you will find it interesting. If you would like to know more, meetings take place at the Old Firestation, normally on a Monday evening. You are welcome to attend, as there is a 15 minute  public question time at the start of the meeting, but if you  have a specific question, it can sometimes be easier to let us know in advance.
