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.

Broadband live on Orchard Park

Connecting Cambridgeshire has advised the Community Council that Broadband is live on Orchard Park!

The cabinet which services the East side of the development went live on Thursday 26th June 2014.   Residents should contact their chosen service provider to make the necessary arrangements to connect to super-fast broadband.   

The second cabinet which will serve the rest of the development will follow as soon as the necessary arrangements are in place, we are advised this will be delivered by the end of September at the latest, it is likely to be sooner that this date.

 Sweetpea and Aster Way: 

The latest information from Persimmon is they have now appointed Civil Engineering Consultants ‘Wormald Burrows‘ to oversee and manage the remedial works on Aster & Sweetpea Way, in communication with ‘Cambridgeshire County Council’ to ensure work is carried out to the required standards.  Contractors will be commencing work in July 2014. 


Following completion of Aster & Sweatpea Way the ‘LAP’s’ and other street repairs across the development will be resolved. 

The remedial work includes levelling the road to specification,  applying the block paving, moving the street light columns and implementing the ‘Local Area of Play’ with the surface and planting to comply with the conditions.
