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.




  • Have Your Say On Police Funding In Cambridgeshire

    Police and Crime Commissioner, Jason Ablewhite is asking home owners how much they are willing to support policing as part of their council tax for 2018/19. In order to gather views, the Commissioner is running a short survey. Please complete the survey by clicking on the title of this article.


  • Energy Switch

    The Council has partnered with iChoosr, the UK’s leading expert in collective energy switching, to deliver bespoke and highly
    competitive energy tariffs. Now is the ideal time for residents, especially those on standard tariffs, to switch. The scheme gives residents to join together and use their collective bargaining power to bid for better prices for electricity and gas.
    Residents are encouraged to register on the Cambridgeshire Energy Switch scheme to see if they can secure a good rate for the year ahead as wholesale energy prices are likely to continue to increase in the coming weeks.
    Or visit Cambridgeshire County Council’s website and click on the Cambridgeshire Energy Switch logo on the front page.
    An auction will be held on Tuesday 13 February 2018 after which individuals will receive a personal offer, and can then make a decision on whether to switch to the winning supplier. The rates are exclusive to residents switching through the scheme and are not available direct from the suppliers or via price comparison websites.
    There is no obligation for people to accept an offer, but if you do it’s easy and straight forward and the new provider will take care of the whole process.
    The deadline to accept the offer is Tuesday 27 March. If you have any issues registering please contact the helpdesk on 0800 048 8285 which is open Mon-Friday 08.30am - 5.30pm or contact the Energy Investment Unit at Cambridgeshire County Council on 01223 715349.


  • Speedwatch
