About The Council

Avon Dassett Parish Council meets every other month in The Reading Room usually on the first Monday of each month, unless this is a bank holiday. The meetings are open to any member of the public who wishes to attend and all are welcome.


If anyone wishes to attend for a specific purpose or to raise a specific problem or concern it would be very helpful if they would advise our clerk in advance of the meeting so that we can ensure that specific time is made available for any discussion etc that is needed.

What We Do


  1. ensure that the street lighting is maintained and pay for the electricity
  2. manage the village playground
    • regularly reviewing the equipment and fencing
    • arranging for an annual external review 
    • ensuring that the grass is mown.
  3. arrange and pay for the mowing of the green areas in the village including the playground, cemetery, village green and highway verges

We are bound by a Code of Conduct set by Government mandate, and we perform regular Risk Assessments to support our decision taking.


We also create and maintain a development plan for the Parish and an Emergency Plan dictating the local response to any major incident affecting the parish.
