Welcome to the website of Orton Waterville Parish Council which serves the areas of Orton Southgate, Orton Brimbles, Orton Northgate, Orton Wistow and parts of Orton Goldhay as well as the Waterville village area.
It is a large parish both in area – encompassing part of Ferry Meadows park, the East of England showground and OrtonGate shopping centre – and in population, which is approximately 10,500.
The council members are local people from many walks of life with a common goal of working together to improve life for parishioners.
Please contact us if you have questions concerning the work of the Parish Council, if you have any concerns that you feel the Council should be aware of or where it can help or support you.
VACANCIES FOR PARISH COUNCILLORS
There are presently (Jan 2016) two vacancies upon the Orton Waterville parish council – one for the Wistow ward and one for the Goldhay West ward.
The parish council is able to co-opt new members onto the council and, therefore, invite enquiries/applications from persons that wish to join the council.
A parish council has many powers to carry out actions that will improve the lives of the residents – as can be ascertained by looking through this website. Due to changes being made by central government to devolve more functions to local councils and with Peterborough City council also encouraging parish councils to become more active in the management of their own areas the responsibilities and actions of Orton Waterville parish council will almost certainly expand in forthcoming years.
If you would like to become a parish councillor and contribute to the future of our parish then please contact us by either using the ‘Contact’ form on this website or contacting:

One week before each of the council meetings the agenda for the meeting and a copy of the draft minutes of the previous meeting will be posted.

You will then see the matters that are currently being discussed by the council and decide if you wish to have input, either by attending the meeting to give your opinion in the public participation slot, or by contacting the Clerk or one of your councillors in advance of the meeting.
