Parish Council Meetings

At the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020, face to face meetings were prohibited. As a result, meetings of the Parish Council were stopped. The Government has now made changes to the requirements allowing Council meetings to be held by video conferencing on line. The Parish Council will be holding ‘virtual’ meetings using the ‘ZOOM’ platform until the restrictions are lifted. 


Agendas and minutes will be posted on our website as normal. There will be public speaking time should any resident wish to speak on items on the agenda. To join the meeting please contact the Clerk at: or phone 01702 207707 before 12pm on the day of the meeting and a link and password will be sent to you.

To ALL Essex Residents,

In a move to slow the current rates of infection across our county, from Saturday, Essex will be placed into the high level of restrictions (tier 2 on the new COVID system).

What does this mean? No household mixing indoors – this includes at home or in hospitality venues Different households can meet outdoors in public spaces but must stick to the 'Rule of six' 10pm curfews will remain in place for all pubs and restaurants .

Remember hands, face and space.

Reduce travel where you can.

If we act now, we can stop the spread and protect our loved ones as we head into the winter months.

Detailed information on the new guidelines is available on the Essex County Council website



Please be advised, the Government’s decision applies to the Essex County Council area and NOT the #Southend and #Thurrock Council areas.

Hockley Parish Council News in Brief October 2020

Remembrance Day Many plans have had to be cancelled this year due to the Covid-19 Virus and the Remembrance Service is sadly one of them as the health and safety of residents has taken priority.  It is important that we remember those who served and lost their lives for our country.  The Council Chairman will lay a wreath at the Southend Road War Memorial and the gate will be left open from Sat.7th to Thurs 12th November so anyone who wishes can lay a wreath or cross.  The poppies knitted by the community for the 100th Anniversary will be on display again outside the Parish Hall.  Amos Estates are arranging to display poppies around the village. You may wish to put some in your windows at home.


Litter Picking: Due to the increasing volume of rubbish being discarded in many of our areas, various community spirited residents have volunteered additional help.  The Rochford District Litter Picks have been clearing sites around the District including Hockley and Hawkwell and have been joined by some of our youngsters; the Tidy Team have been litter picking at Marylands Nature Reserve, which they hope to make a regular occurrence.  Rochford District Council are responsible for rubbish clearance and our Parish Council Rangers make additional litter pick rounds twice weekly at the Nature Reserve and in the Village. Please let us know then any rubbish bags need to be collected.  Details of volunteer litter picks days are posted on facebook.


Discover 2020 : A team of 170 volunteers have created a stunning 30ft long ‘Rochford District Heritage Tapestry’, which depicts the history of our district over the past 1,000 years. The project, organised by the Rochford Town Team, has been a 20 month long ‘labour of love’ – with volunteers even working over the lockdown period using take-home kits - including one of our Parish Councillors at 90 years young and several residents from Hockley. They have painstakingly created 10 panels (each 65cm high by 90cm wide) which show a timeline of dramatic historic change, with the overall design based on research by local historians. Find out more, including the local history behind each panel, at:





Christmas is coming………

The Parish Council will have all the lights and Christmas tree up in the village by the end of November.  This year the children will find a Christmas Poster to colour and other activities on our website and facebook page during the weeks leading up to Christmas - more details to follow
