Welcome to Orchard Park Community Council

Orchard Park Community Council came into being on 1 April 2009 although the elections to the Council took place later, in June 2009. The most recent election was in May 2015 and the next elections are due to be in May 2019, apart from any election which may be called for a casual vacancy.

A 'Community Council'  is another name for a Parish Council - the first level of government closest to the people and representing the concerns of the local community.

The council meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 7pm at The Orchard Community Centre. Everyone is welcome to attend any meeting with the opportunity to ask questions at the start of each meeting.

Dog Fouling

Many people are concerned about dog fouling in public places which has increased recently. It is the legal responsibility of dog owners to clear up after their dogs. As well as being an unpleasant eye-sore it also presents health hazards, including toxicariasis, a roundworm which can cause stomach upsets and blindness. Children in play areas are especially vulnerable. If you walk your dog on Orchard Park please make sure you clean up afterwards.

The Community Council has a contract with SCDC to empty the dog bins provided, every two weeks.  It is not the responsibility of the Community Council staff to clear away dog fouling, please adhere to the Council signs on our open space facilities.
