Olveston Parish Council is committed to working for the good of the whole of Olveston Parish and wants to hear your views on what we should be doing to support the local community. All your ideas are welcomed. Please take a moment to explore this site.
Olveston is an Ancient Civil Parish with records of overseers going back to the early 1700’s, the Parish Council was formed under the Local Government Act 1894 and serves the villages of Olveston and Tockington, and the hamlets of Old Down, Awkley, Ingst, and Lower Hazel.
Parish and Town Councils are the first tier of Local Government in this country. As such, on many issues, Olveston Parish Council is the best first stop for information and guidance. We are in direct communication with the District Council, and liaise with them on many matters impacting on the Parish. There is a huge variety in what the Parish Council has to do and we welcome anyone who wishes to help in making the Parish the best place to live. If you have the time and the passion, we are always looking for volunteers
This is the first standalone website for Olveston Parish Council, being a priority in our aspirations for greater communication with the residents we represent. We hope this will provide a greater insight of councillor’s roles and responsibilities, whilst keeping the community better informed about issues that may affect them.
