Parish Council

Parish Council

Parish councils are statutory bodies primarily made up of volunteers elected for four-year terms. They are funded mainly through an annual precept added to council tax, collected by the principal authority and distributed to the parishes in two six-monthly instalments. While parishes can seek additional funding through grants, they do not receive direct central government funds.

Hauxton Parish Council is dedicated to enhancing community well-being and services. Its key activities include representing the community, delivering local services, and improving residents’ quality of life. The council has discretionary powers over various local services, such as managing allotments, bridleways, burial grounds, and more.

The Council convenes on the first Thursday of each month at the Hauxton Centre. Responsibilities include advising South Cambs District Council on planning, managing the parish budget, overseeing the Recreation ground and amenity areas, footpaths, etc. 

The Parish Councillors

Hauxton Parish Council consists of nine councillors, and a part-time Parish Clerk/Financial Officer. We would be pleased to hear from any resident or anyone who works in Hauxton if you are interested in joining us. The councillors are:

Every year all Parish Councils submit an Annual Governance and Accountability Return for consideration by external auditors appointed by the Audit Commission on behalf of the Government.

Public land and building assets

Hauxton Parish Council manages various public land and building assets as per the “Transparency code for smaller authorities” under the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014. This includes open green spaces, with details available on the provided map. The Hauxton Sports Ground, (formerly owned by the Bayer Sports and Social Club), is owned and managed by the Parish Council.

Hauxton Sports Ground

Cambridge Road
Hauxton CB22 5HT

This green space occupies 1.87 Ha on the western side of the A10 opposite Hauxton Meadows. In the season 2017/18 it had three football pitches of differing sizes, as follows:
11v11 – 90m x 53m, with 24’ x 8’ and 21’ x 7’ goals
9v9 – 66m x 41m, with 16’ x 7’ goals

Willow Way Amenity Area

East of Willow Way
Hauxton

This green space occupies 0.66 Ha. The Parish Council endeavours to keep clear the undergrowth in the wooded area of Willow Way to provide better access for families and children. This area quite quickly becomes impenetrable due to brambles, elder and nettles.

This green space occupies 0.11 Ha.

Hauxton Village Green

This green space is owned by the Hauxton Town Lands Trust (Charity Reg. No. 202961). The Parish Council manages the land on their behalf, eg grass cutting, tree management, etc.

1. **Annual Meeting of the Parish Council:**
– Elects Chairman and Vice-Chairman
– Appoints committees and representatives
– Decides on subscriptions to various bodies
– Reviews policy documents like risk assessment, Standing Orders, Financial Regulations, etc.

2. **Annual Parish Assembly (or Meeting):**
– Separate from the Council but organized by it
– Chaired by the Parish Council Chair (or Vice-Chair if Chair is absent)
– Decisions aren’t binding but considered at the Council meeting
– Open to all electors to speak and vote on local matters
– Typically held in April or May, allowing residents to learn about past year’s activities and ask questions
– Minutes include reports from village organizations.

Junction 11 Park & Ride / Travel Hubs

Junction 11 Park & Ride

The ‘South West Travel Hub’ as the Greater Cambridge Partnership are calling it is planned to be built beside the A10 near to junction 11 of the M11 motorway.  Plans for this are now well advanced despite considerable local opposition, which has raised concerns principally over congestion and air pollution arising from the extra traffic anticipated.

The scheme will include:

Around 2,250 car parking spaces
Around 80 Velobox cycle parking spaces, plus conventional cycle parking
A new long-distance coach hub
Public transport routes to Cambridge and the Biomedical Campus
Next steps and timeline:
