Ilmington Parish Council

 

 

Ilmington Parish Council is a delightful Warwickshire village which lies at the northernmost tip of the Cotswolds, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Approximately 730 people live here, with many of the houses built with the local honey-coloured iron stone. It is known for the many footpaths that criss-cross through the village and for the remnants of its historic, multi-variety apple orchards. The village boasts two pubs, a church, village hall, primary school, and a large, well-supported playing field, which includes a  playground and two tennis courts. Its active and sociable parishioners take part in a whole host of clubs and groups that are found in the village.

When and where  the Council meets
The people of Ilmington are represented by four Parish Councillors.  Between them, they look after the concerns of the village, including:  planning, highways, footpaths, the playing field, mowing, and the Parish precept. The Council meets in the Lounge of the Village Hall, generally on the last Thursday of the month.  Members of the public are more than welcome to attend.

Origins of the Parish Council
The Parish Council met for the first time in December 1894 as a result of the Local Government Act of that year.  The minutes of the newly formed Council reveal its struggle to establish its authority over matters that would previously have come under the court baron; but then, as now, the Parish Council looked after the well-being of Ilmington’s parishioners and the environment they lived in.
