The next ordinary meeting will be on Tuesday 20 February 2018, Lingen Village Hall at 7.30pm.


Update on roadworks…BGPC has been advised as follows:

Today, Monday, 19 February 2018, we were scheduled to carry out highway preparatory works on the C1004 Willey to U92000 road.   Since this road was inspected, it has deteriorated quite substantially and the machinery that was allocated to undertake the repairs today is not deemed suitable and therefore the works have had to be aborted.
We shall therefore be returning on Saturday, 24 February to complete these works but with ‘heavier duty’ machinery to deal with the repairs.  As before, the road will be closed between 09.00 hours and 17.00 hours.  These works are taking place on a Saturday so that it does not interrupt the existing programme of works.
All residents in close proximity to the works have today been sent a letter advising them of the change to the programme.

If you need GRIT for the road see the link for Locations of grit bins


BGPC usually meets on the third Tuesday of the month, but it doesn’t meet every month. You are more than welcome to attend meetings.  Details will be published in Meetings & Agendas.


 What is a Parish Council?

Generally the role of a parish council is to improve the quality of community life for their parish and its inhabitants.

They can:

  • Give views, on behalf of their community, on planning applications and other proposals that affect the parish.
  • Undertake projects and schemes that benefit local residents.
  • Work in partnership with other bodies to achieve benefits for the parish.
  • Alert relevant authorities to problems that arise or work that needs to be undertaken.
  • Help the other tiers of local government keep in touch with their local communities.
