Welcome, this is the Bradpole Parish Council Community Website.
Bradpole Parish Council manages this website to enable readers to be kept up to date with developments and issues facing the Civil Parish of Bradpole, its Council, and its residents.
Do you know the difference between a Civil Parish and an Ecclesiastical Parish? Our Parish Council page will explain this in more detail.
Bradpole Parish Council represents the views of local people, negotiates and influences the decisions which directly affect the community and aims to improve the quality of life for everyone living and working in the area.
We maintain this community website as a relevant source of factual information by regular updating.
We have reported on this website in previous years the steps that have been taken since 2014 to eradicate the outbreak of Japanese Knotweed at Townsend Way, Bradpole.
A recent study on the control of Japanese Knotweed has been published by Swansea University in which they say that most information for people affected by the plant is largely based on anecdote. Knotweed can be controlled using glyphosate at the right time of year, though this can usually take three to five years.
that two casual vacancies have arisen in the Office of Councillor for the Parish Council.
If by 5 October 2018 (14 days* after the date of this notice) a request for an election to fill the vacancies is made in writing to the Returning Officer at the address below by TEN electors for the Parish, an election will be held to fill the vacancies , otherwise the vacancies will be filled by co-option.
If you wish to request an election you must supply your full name and address as there is a requirement for the Returning Officer to verify that those requesting an election are from the correct electoral area and that they are currently included on the electoral register.
If an election is called, it will take place not later than 10 December 2018.
