These "unofficial" website pages have been redesigned for on-line operation.
Houghton and Wyton Parish Council can "take over" this section GRATIS if they wish and at the touch of a button we can engage a whole range of facilities here specifically designed for town and parish councils. These functions are all easily controlled on-line from any browser:
And what's more we are developing further services, like on-line forms to take the paperwork out of communication. If you are a councillor or a staff member of Houghton and Wyton Parish Council and would like to talk to us about this, just send us an email.
The Council Section of this website is compliant with UK Government quality, accessibility and metadata standards regulations:
Note*: We test new pages to WCAG Triple-A Standard although pages published many years ago in other parts of the website will not achieve the current high standards.
Houghton and Wyton Parish Council performs a range of functions to provide management of the local facilities and environment. Some of these functions it conducts itself whilst in other cases it provides feed back to Huntingdonshire District Council, Cambridgeshire County Council and National Government. Houghton and Wyton Parish Council has direct representation on Huntingdon District Council and numerous other local organisations.
But perhaps the most important responsibility taken on by the Houghton and Wyton Parish Councillors is to maintain the public pride and civic dignity of the parish. Look around and observe your community. Most of what you see has been passionately devised, created, organised and maintained by dedicated citizens of the Houghton and Wyton who have been elected as parish councillors over many years. This can only happen with the support of the rest of the population and that may mean you too.
