Ashendon Parish Council consists of five Councillors who play a role in representing the interests of the community they serve. Councillors meet in the Village Hall, Main Street, Ashendon, HP18 0HB on the third Monday of the month (except August and October). This is a public meeting and everyone is welcome to attend. The Chairman is elected every year at the Annual General Meeting in May. Parish Councillors are elected every four years. The next Parish Council elections will be held in 2019.
A Parish is the first tier of local government closest to its community. It represents the interests of residents at parish level but also engages with District and County Councils to report on issues affecting the Parish. The Parish Council is a corporate body and its decisions are the responsibility of the whole body. Granted powers by Parliament, it has the authority to raise money through taxation (the precept). It has powers and duties relating to:
- bus shelters
- commons and common pastures
- crime prevention and community safety
- entertainment and the arts
- environment including litter and dog control orders
- open spaces
- street lighting
- Town and Country planning
- traffic calming
- community transport
- war memorials
- well being planning, provision of recreational facilities, crime prevention, community transport, footpaths and commons.
In 2015, Councillors resolved to enter the Local Council Devolution Scheme and engage a Service Provider to ensure the provision of Devolved Services which includes grass cutting, hedge trimming and sign cleaning.
