Election Parish Councillor

Due to CBC receiving a request for an election by members of the parish and two applicants having come forward, there will now be an election for the vacancy on the Parish Council. The election is to take place on Thursday 4 April 2013 in Eaton Bray Village Hall. Please come and give your vote.

(A called/contested election means a cost to the parish/Parish Council of c£3,000)

Dog Fouling

ONCE AGAIN THIS IS BECOMING A PROBLEM IN THE PARISH - It is an offence to allow a dog, which you are responsible for, to foul and not clear it up immediately when in a public place. There are a number of dog hygiene bins situated around the parish for dog walkers to use.

Allowing dogs to foul and not clean up after them is illegal as well as being anti-social. Offenders can expect a fixed penalty notice of 75 or prosecution in some cases.

If you want to report a problem with dog mess or to report dog fouling, please call or email Central Beds Council Customer Services on - Tel: 0300 300 8302 or Email: [email protected]

Next Council Meeting

Monday 8th April 2013, 7.30pm, in the Coffee Tavern.
