As you are aware, District, Town and Parish elections are taking place across East Suffolk on Thursday 2nd May 2019.
Neither Walpole nor Cookley received more valid nominations than seats available so there will not be a poll for Parish Elections on 2nd May.

Cookley and Walpole Parish Council meets at 7.15 for 7.30 pm in Walpole Pavilion, usually on the 3rd Tuesday of every month except August and December. Members of the public are warmly welcome to attend these meetings which open with a public forum where residents can ask questions, chat to councillors or air their views on local matters that may concern them. Once the Council meeting is underway, residents may remain but not participate (unless invited to by the Council for some reason). The present Councillors, some elected and some co-opted, but all working on behalf of local residents and their interests, are:
|Robert Chase||Cookley||Road Safety|
|Susan Moore||Walpole||Road Safety|
|Anne Thomas||Walpole||Vice Chair & Trees|
|Mark Wenham||Walpole||Emergency Planning|
There is currently 1 vacancy on the Parish Council, for the Parish of Cookley.
A typical agenda covers Planning, Finance, Highways, Footpaths, the Environment, Trees and hedgerows, the Cemetery, reports from local groups (eg Cookpole Energy Action).
Please contact our Parish Clerk, Paul Widdowson, if you wish to bring any issue to the attention of your parish council or indeed if you are interested in becoming a councillor yourself.
