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.
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.
