Parish Councils are the lowest tier of Local Government in England, and are therefore generally the closest to the people they represent. To quote from Judge John Prophet :
"The Parish Council is one of the great survivors in our governmental institutions. It was the only council not abolished under the Local Government Act 1972 and has now been in continuous existence for over one hundred years. Long may it prosper as an admirable example of the benefits to our governmental system of local decision-making by elected representatives of the people". ["The Parish Councillor's Guide" (Shaw & Sons, ISBN 0 7219 0515 3)]

Acton Bridge Parish Council consists of up to eight Councillors and a Clerk. We usually meet at 7:30pm on the first Monday of each month in the Parish Rooms, to discuss planning applications, local concerns and items of interest to the community. You can download a Calendar of Forthcoming Meetings here.

In compliance with Transparency requirements, Parish Council Meeting and AGM Minutes, details of your Parish and Borough Councillors, your Weaver Vale Constituency MP, and links to Statutory Documents and Compliance Information can now be found via our Transparency Page. A statement regarding the Parish Council's compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) can also be downloaded from there. Earlier Acton Bridge Parish Council Minutes dating back to 1972 have been archived at the Cheshire Record Office, Chester.
