  What does Hockley Parish Council do?

The Parish Council is the elected body made up of local people representing the interests of the community.   Hockley Parish Council is non political and has 15 members, 13 elected and 2, co-opted at present, representing sub divisions of the Parish, which in Hockley are West Ward and East Ward.   The Parish Council is funded almost entirely from the precept, or charges to householders within the parish boundary. The precept is collected by Rochford District Council on behalf of the Parish as part of the Council Tax. The Full Council meets monthly and all meetings are open to the public.

  • Street Lighting in side roads where the County Council does not provide the service.
  • Provision of some bus shelters where they are not provided by other authorities.
  • Management of recreational areas such as Marylands Nature Reserve, Plumberow Play Space, Laburnham Play Space and Broad Parade.
  • Works in partnership with Essex County on public rights of way and footpaths.
