WELCOME


Welcome to the website of Hurley Parish Council.  We hope that you will find it easy to use and the information useful whether you are a resident or a visitor.

The Parish Council is the elected civil parish council which covers Hurley, Warren Row and parts of Burchetts Green, Cockpole Green, Knowl Hill and Littlewick Green.

There are ten Councillors, four representing the North Ward of the parish covering Hurley and Burchetts Green and six representing the South Ward covering the remainder of the parish.

Meetings are held on the third Thursday each month at locations across the two wards to ensure that all residents have easy access to the council.

A ward Councillor from the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead usually attends the meetings and members of the public are always welcome.  

Towards the beginning of each meeting we hold an Open Forum so that members of the public have the opportunity to ask questions or pass on useful  information.

We welcome any comments that you may wish to make about this website.  If you find any errors, or if you want to make a comment, please contact the Parish Clerk.

Councillor Mrs Cynthia Pitteway
Parish Council Chairman


RBWM Electoral Review

A review of the Royal Borough’s ward boundaries has begun, giving residents a chance to have their say on the proposals. The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has announced the borough should have 43 councillors in the future, 14 fewer than the current number. In a consultation that closes on 4th December 2017 residents can submit their comments on how the borough’s ward boundaries should be redrawn to reflect these changes.

Hurley and Walthams Neighbourhood Plan

Planning matters affect all of us.  
There is to be a referendum on Thursday 23rd November 2017.  All registered voters within the Parish of Hurley (and across the wider area of Hurley and Walthams) will have the right to decide the following question:–

“Do you want the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Hurley and Walthams to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area.”  

The Neighbourhood Plan has been devised by Parish Councils and other stakeholders, who worked in partnership with the Borough Council to draw up a plan which was reflective of local wishes.  For further details see:- http://www.hurleyandthewalthams.org/hurleyandthewalthams/Home.html
