Your first point of contact for community issues…
A parish council is a civil local authority and the first tier of local government. They were formed under the Local Government Act 1894 to take over local oversight of civic duties. They are elected corporate bodies, with tax raising powers, and are responsible for looking after their civil parish.
Their activities fall into three main categories: representing the local community, delivering services to meet local needs, and improving quality of life and community well being.
Brickhill Parish Council is democratically elected by you and our councillors can alter whenever there is an election. Brickhill also elects two councillors to Bedford Borough Council.
Our aim is to represent the concerns of local residents and provide services to meet local needs. We have a wide range of powers including looking after community buildings, planning, street lighting, allotments and more.
