Acomb Parish Council

Acomb Parish Council is the lowest level of Local Government in the area. As such it is responsible for a small number of functions, such as public allotments, management of some roadside areas, consultative Planning functions, Neighborhood Plan, Bus Shelters, local signage, litter bins, public seats and Grant Funding.

Unusually for a Parish Council, it is also the sole Trustee of 3 Charitable Trusts:

Acomb Village Hall

Acomb Recreation Ground

Acomb Playing Field Pavilion

In this capacity, the Parish Council manages the Village Hall, the Playing Fields (including the Tennis Courts, Children’s Play Area, Zip-wire and Football Field) and the Pavilion.

The Parish Council has 7 elected members who represent the electorate, acting as a conduit between the community and Northumberland County Council. Elections occur every 4 years, the next one being May 2021.

 The County Councilor, Cllr Trevor Cessford attends most Parish Council Meetings. Meetings are normally held monthly on the first Wednesday of the month at 7pm and are open to the public. Zoom meetings are presently in place due to the current Covid-19 Guidance restrictions. Please contact Bill Grigg, Parish Clerk to arrange attendance.
