Welcome to Orchard Park Community Council

Orchard Park Community Council came into being on 1 April 2009 although the elections to the Council took place later, in June 2009. The most recent election was in May 2015, additional election’s may be called for a casual vacancy.

A ‘Community Council’  is another name for a Parish Council – the first level of government closest to the people and representing the concerns of the local community.

The council meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 7pm at The Orchard Community Centre. Everyone is welcome to attend any meeting with the opportunity to ask questions at the start of each meeting.

Crime in Orchard Park

Sadly, reported incidents of crime in Orchard Park has increased over the past year and continues to do so. House burglary, theft from garden sheds and bikes left chained in any open space are prime targets.  Although the first point of contact for such criminal offences is the Police, the Community Council are doing what we can to reduce this statistic.

Please see our leaflet attached. police-flyer 

The Community Council would like to hear from anyone who feels they could offer resources to a neighbourhood watch scheme.
