    Ashbury Parish Clerk Vacancy

    The Parish Council wishes to recruit a new clerk from the end of August.  The role includes organising meetings, minute taking, financial management and reporting, and liaising with the District and County Councils where necessary.  It is ideal for someone who would like to contribute more formally to the local community. The role requires approx 15 hours per month payable at National pay scale rates.  Apart from regular meetings attendance, the work can mostly been done at a time convenient to the individual, so would suit a freelancer, mum/carer, or person looking to get back into the workforce/improve their CV.   Meetings are every other month in the village hall on a Monday evening and usually last no more than an hour and a half.  If you are interested or would like more information please contact Kate Watkins asap on KATE_L_WATKINS@HOTMAIL.CO.UK

  • Ashbury Neighbourhood Plan Examination  
    Last updated 7 days ago.

    Ashbury Neighbourhood Plan Examination

    The Parish Neighbourhood Plan was submitted to VWHDC for examination on 9th October 2018, thereby triggering the most critical element of the plan process.   While the timing of the examination is entirely out of the steering group’s control, we expect it to take some 6-weeks after which we should be able to confirm the date for the Parish Referendum.  

    We will of course monitor the situation and keep you informed of progress when we have it, but in the meantime the steering group wishes to take this opportunity to thank both local residents & businesses for the support and assistance already given over such a lengthy process.
