Lamboune Parish Council
Lambourne Parish Council serving the communities of Abridge and Lambourne End. The above is the motto of Lambourne Parish Council reflecting the fact that the villages of Abridge and Lambourne End belong to the same Parish. Think of Lambourne School which is situated in Hoe Lane, Abridge and Lambourne Church, Church Lane, Abridge, which geographically stands right in the middle of the parish. Lambourne Parish is divided into two wards and is represented by 9 councillors, 6 of whom serve the Abridge ward and 3 who serve the Lambourne ward.
The council holds 10 meetings a year in the Abridge Village Hall and 2 meetings a year in the Lambourne Parish Rooms. Details of these meetings can be found on the link above or notice-board below. The council holds monthly meetings with the first 15 minutes open to the public as a forum to express their views in relation to any community issues and concerns including Planning, Planning Enforcement, Parking, Transport, Highways, Playgrounds and Anti-Social Behaviour etc. Everybody from both villages is welcome to attend any of our meetings and details of these are displayed on the notice boards of both village halls, in Linkup and on this website.
New Speed Limit on Ongar Road (A113)
As of 13th November 2019, there is a new speed limit of 40mph that starts just before Church Lane coming from the Airfield on Ongar Road. This runs the whole distance through to where the 30mph limit starts on the bend before the Village Hall.
This has always been a dangerous stretch of road and a local resident has worked tirelessly to get the speed limit lowered along this stretch after seeing a number of accidents and near misses. Please drive carefully throughout the Parish and adhere to this and all speed limits.
We would like to hear from all residents of the Parish. If you could take the time to fill in our survey it would be much appreciated. This will help us plan the future of the Parish. Please go to our Survey Page.
