Consultation to extend Community Council’s boundaries to include Canterbury Bradford Trident has successfully worked with family action groups, children’s centres, local schools and community development groups in Canterbury for several years; it has been involved in the Canterbury Carnival and will be holding a Canterbury Summer Celebration there later this summer.

Following the positive impact of this and following requests from local residents and groups, the Community Council is carrying out a consultation with the residents in Canterbury to find out if they would like to be part of the Community Council area and we would like to hear your views on this. If you are a local resident in Canterbury, please email to give us your thoughts on whether you would like the Community Council’s boundaries extending to include Canterbury. If you are a resident from elsewhere in Little Horton, we would also welcome your views on this.

Being part of the Community Council would mean giving the people of Canterbury a stronger voice, better local services and a demographic voice at a grass roots level. It will give the people of Canterbury a greater say on what goes on in their neighbourhood and can really make a difference.

The Community Council has the same powers as a parish council. Parish Councils make all kinds of decisions on issues that affect the local community. Probably the most common issues that our Community Council get involved with are planning issues, fly tipping and cleaner/greener issues and crime prevention. Our Community Council is not political and is one of the only Parish Councils in the country that does not charge a precept.

Consultations will also be held in the form of drop in centres over the coming months, watch this space for further information.
