Representing and promoting the interests and the well-being of the parish

Who we are & what we do

The Parish Council came into existence in 1894. Crick Parish Council consists of 11 Councillors who serve for a four year term. Of course, at the end of their term, they may stand for re-election and serve a longer term.

The Parish Council is staffed by the Clerk, who works 24 hours a week. The Parish Council's offices are at The Old School, Church Street, Crick, NN6 7TP and are open for meetings and other scheduled events.

The Parish Council's responsibilities include public open spaces, burial ground, street lights, setting a precept for services provided and work for the benefit of the community.

The Council has a number of active Working Groups and a Committee which has delegated responsibility for staffing matters.

Meetings of the Parish Council are held on the third Monday of every month at The Old School. The Annual Parish Meeting is held between March and June of each year and the Annual Parish Council meeting is held in May.


Our Councillors are all elected or co-opted onto the Council.
All Councillors reside/work within the Parish and are holders of a public office. Pursuant to legislation, the Chairman may receive a small allowance to meet the expenses of his/her office. Apart from the Chairman's allowance, Councillors do not receive any payment whatsoever for their duties and give their time and effort on a purely voluntary basis.
