Sandymoor Parish Council works towards improving the community well-being and providing better services at a local level. The Parish Council was formed to give the residents of Sandymoor a forum whereby they can have an input into the development of the area and raise any local issues or concerns. We have many projects ongoing to improve the parish for all our residents.
Councillors are elected every four years with the last election being May 2021. If a vacancy for a councillor occurs, due to resignation of a current councillor, between those elections, then the vacancy will be advertised on this site and via our social media accounts. Any suitable candidates will be co-opted from the applications received.
We are currently working on several projects to improve our area, for details see the projects page.
The council relies on volunteers to help make the projects successful. If you are interested in getting involved in one of our projects then please attend one of our meetings ( next meeting date ), email Arthur, our clerk, or use the contact us form.
If you'd like to propose an idea for a project, this must be done at one of our meetings. To do this then please email Arthur, our clerk, the details of the idea before 5pm on the Wednesday of the week before the next meeting so it can be added onto the meeting agenda.
Please email Louise, our digital officer, with the details of the group.
Check out our useful contacts page where you should be able to find who to contact to get the problem addressed. If the contact you need is not on there then email Arthur, our clerk, who may be able to help.
The council currently owns and maintains 4 areas of public open space as shown on the map. Site 1 is a small area opposite the mini roundabout at the junction of Newmoore Lane and Wharford Lane. Site 2 is currently maintained as playing fields by Sandymoor Ormiston Academy. Site 3 is located between Swans Reach and the Bloor Homes development, this is the location of our new Jubilee forest installation. Site 4 is the Swans Reach pond.
The council have agreed to allow residents to have memorial plaques on the benches in the forest but it needs to be requested via this form and adhere to the specifications described.
