The aims (Mission Statement) of Akeley Parish Council:

Akeley Parish Council represents the first tier of local government for its community (Akeley and Akeley Wood). Its main aims are:
To represent the local community in a fair, balanced and informed manner in order to improve the quality of life for those living and working in the parish and ensure community well-being and sustainability.
To deliver services to meet local needs.
To foster a socially-inclusive and caring community in which all residents have the opportunity to influence their future and that of the parish.
To manage its assets and finances in an open, efficient and effective manner for the benefit of all residents.
This statement was formally approved at the Parish Council meeting held on July 13th 2015

A full complement of 7 parish councillors was duly nominated and elected in May 2015. When casual vacancies occured due to councillor’s resignation they were filled by co-option.

Contact any of them, or come along to a meeting to find out what they do and how you can have your say in local matters.

If we are not the correct authority to deal with your query, we will find the right direction to point you in and can represent you if necessary.

Parish Councillors are normally elected for a 4-year term. The last elections were in May 2015. Due to the change to unitary authority for Buckinghamshire from 2020, the next parish council elections were to take place in May 2020, with current councillors’ term extended to 5 years.  Due to the coronavirus, the May 2020 elections have been postponed until May 2021; therefore the current term has been extended further to 6 years.

3 Councillors at a meeting constitutes a quorum.
