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 2011 and the next elections are due to be in May 2015, 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.
