New Boundaries for Tarvin Parish

Though many of the hedges, ditches and boundaries around Tarvin go back for many centuries, some are more recent and subject to regular scrutiny. CWaC is in the process of conducting a Corporate Governance Review on the way that the parish system works and to determine if any changes are needed. After a long period of consultation it has been agreed by CW&C that the boundaries of the civil parish of Tarvin should be changed in the following way;

Hockenhull, Bruen Stapleford and Pryors's Hayes parishes, which currently have no Parish Council, shall be incorporated into a new Tarvin Parish.

Some properties at the eastern end of the parish shall be transferred to Willington Parish
A small area of Duddon Parish near Okells Nursery will be transferred to the new Tarvin Parish

The new Tarvin Parish will consist of one single ward

There will be 11 Parish Councillors, the same number as now.

Details of the changes can be seen on the map on the Parish Council notice boards in the village, at Oscroft, and on the Parish Council web site here

Such changes reflect the changing face of the local area as new housing is built and new work patterns arise. It also allows for the correction of some odd anomalies that sometimes build up over the passage of time. Though there is another formal period of consultation with affected householders to go through, it is expected that all the legal requirements will be completed in time for the 2015 General Election

The Parish Council is delighted with the result of the Review and feels that the new boundary best represents the area of which Tarvin village, with its shops, transport links, Health Centre and school, is the natural centre.
