Who we are

.. and what we do

Comberton Parish Council administers public funds for the benefit of the residents to provide and maintain play equipment, public seats, litter bins and such. It also contracts for some public services like grass cutting on the playing fields and open spaces.

The roads, pavements, fences, hedging and trees are the responsibility of the County or District Council, or the landowner, but the Parish Council will always take an interest in everything within the parish and liaise accordingly on a resident’s behalf where appropriate.

The Parish Council also acts as agent of the County under the Parish Paths Scheme to maintain and improve the thirty public footpaths in the parish.

Comberton Parish Council has up to thirteen Councillors that come up for election every four years. The Parish Council is the first stage in the democratic process, and aims to care for all the affairs of the Parish and ensure that at all times, statutory requirements are met.
