About Haxey Parish Council
There are 15 Haxey Parish Council Councillors, who are elected representatives. Currently, there are 11 from Westwoodside and 4 from Haxey. Councillors are not paid and receive no income, so all work done on our Resident’s behalf is completely voluntary. The Council normally meets on the last Tuesday in each month and there are 12 planned meetings per year. However, because of the large number of planning applications in the Parish, there were 18 meetings last year in the period April 2006 to May 2007 and in total, 83 applications were considered. So far this year, the Parish Council has reviewed and commented on 31 planning applications.
Local Representation on Other Committees
Parish Councillors also attend other meetings with organisations such as the Isle of Axholme Drainage Board, Local Neighbourhood Watch meetings and North Lincolnshire Council meetings with Town and Parish Councils
The Parish Council is also represented on Haxey and Westwoodside Village Hall Committees, Haxey and Westwoodside Playing Field Committees, the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England (CPRE), St. Nicholas Parochial Church Council (PCC) Closed Churchyard only, the Isle of Axholme Physically Handicapped Society, Epworth Police Authority Neighbourhood Panel, Axholme South Neighbourhood Action Team, the Joint Advisory Committee for the Turbary Land and the East Riding and North Lincolnshire Local Councils Association (ERNLLCA).
