East Claydon Parish Council

The Parish Council raises money through the precept, which is set every year. They decide on the amount required for the next year to cover regular spending on maintenance, insurance, clerk’s salary, etc plus any special projects such as major work on the Village Hall. This is put forward to Buckinghamshire County Council, who collects it on the Parish Council’s behalf as part of the Council Tax.

The Parish Council’s main responsibilities are maintenance of the Village Hall and the playground. They also liaise with Buckinghamshire Council on matters like planning, road maintenance and road safety and apply for money the County Council has available for the above and anything else they feel would benefit the community. In recent months some of the Parish Council’s money has been spent on road safety.

Planning applications are decided by Buckinghamshire Council for major projects. However, the Parish Council are always invited to comment on applications and Buckinghamshire Council will take this in to consideration.

The Council usually has six meetings a year plus an Annual Parish Meeting (AGM) which are open for all to attend; a list of dates for the regular meetings are posted on the Village Hall notice board or on here. Occasionally additional meetings are required to deal with anything which might need attention - for example planning applications, as these attract a lot of interest.

Councillors are elected for a period of four years. Next election is due in 2025.

East Claydon Parish Council is under the Grendon Underwood Ward. Our Unitary Councillors are: Angela Macpherson, Frank Mahon, Michael Rand.

The Parish Council Meetings are held at 8pm on the third Thursday of each month in the Village Hall.

This area is known as the Civil Parish but there is also a Church Parish, called the Parish of the Claydons, which covers all of the Claydons and Calvert and is responsible for the three churches in the villages.

East Claydon Parish Council covers East and Botolph Claydon, with about 150 houses and 290 names on the electoral roll. Sandhill and Verney Junction come under the Parish of Middle Claydon.
