NORTHLEACH WITH EASTINGTON TOWN COUNCIL
Information about the Town Council including meetings and contact details are available on our notice board in the Market Place. Further information about Northleach Town Council can be found here…
QUESTION OF THE MONTH?
We are asked lots of questions about our community. This month we have had many enquiries about grass and hedge cutting. In Northleach we have a main grass cutting contractor and in addition Highways, Cotswold District Council, Bromford Housing, local businesses and residents are responsible for other areas. The result is that the spaces are not all cut on the same day or by the same people. If you have any queries about grass or hedge cutting, please contact us for clarification.
NEW COUNCIL FOR NORTHLEACH
9 nominations were received for the 11 seats on the Town Council, therefore, the following Members are elected unopposed:
Nick Blades, Nick Fisher, Neil Fletcher, Vicki Hewer, Patrick Sanders, Graham Stock, Carol Stokes, Duncan Turner and Alan Wellman. Contact details will be posted on the Town Council’s Market Place notice board.
It is hoped to co-opt to fill the 2 remaining vacancies at the Annual Town Council Meeting. If you are interested in being considered please contact the Clerk. firstname.lastname@example.org
