Benwick Parish Council

Benwick Parish Council consists of 7 elected members. Elections are held every four years, with the next one in 2019.

The Parish Council meets on the first working Monday of each month, in the side room of the village hall.

There are 15 minutes at the beginning of every Parish Council meeting where the public can ask any questions, or raise any concerns to the Parish Council.

  • Woodland Trust

    Whatever you want to plant, whether it’s one tree in your garden or a whole wood, we can help.Every sapling that we provide is UK sourced and grown to minimise the risk of importing and spreading tree pests and diseases.Seeds are collected and stored in the UK, and they are all coded and batched so that we can track an individual tree.Over the next 10 years, we’re aiming to plant 64 million trees and we can’t do it without you.

  • Police Non Emergency Reporting

    Non-emergency situations can now be reported to the police online if people would rather do so than call 101.
    In October last year Cambridgeshire Constabulary re-launched their website with added functionality to report non-emergencies via specially designed forms or a live webchat.
    The live webchat option enables people to communicate directly with a member of staff in the control room, just as would be the case
    when calling 101. Online forms are processed in the same way as a call and the person reporting can expect a response within 24 hours.
    Due to the high level of demand there are often queues when calling 101. Reporting online is quick, easy and free of charge.
    Superintendent James Sutherland said: “In the digital age people are doing more and more online. I’m pleased that our website now has
    increased capability to allow people to contact us in this way.
    “The system went through a thorough testing process and has been used successfully thousands of times since being introduced.
    “Feedback from a recent survey suggested that some people wanted to communicate directly with a person rather than submitting an online form. The webchat function allows people to do exactly that.
    “Reports submitted online are treated in the same way as when people call 101 and will receive the same outcome.”
