PARISH COUNCIL

Hollowell and Teeton Parish Council, consisting of eight councillors and the clerk, meet bi-monthly at Hollowell Village Hall. The councillors are responsible for, among other things, the setting of the Parish precept and determining how the precept is spent throughout the year.

The Parish Council is responsible for various aspects of the Parish, including:

  • Mowing - the Parish Council contracts an external supplier to mow communal areas within the Parish. Please see Parish Mowing Areas document on the right for the latest maps.

  • Street lights - the Parish Council has recently undergone an extensive project to replace all streetlights within the Parish to more energy efficient models, to comply with legislation. The new models have also provided savings to the Parish through reduced energy consumption, therefore reduced energy bills. Please report any faults /  extinguished street lamps to the Clerk quoting the location and lamp number, which can be found on the Parish Street Lighting Map on the right.

  • Rights of Way [Footpaths / Bridle Ways] - are not a direct responsibility of the Parish Council but Councillor Sue McCubbin undertakes maintaining liasion with the County Rights of Way Officer in regard to Rights of Way within the Parish. [Note Policy for RoW CY6 - The Jetty, Hollowell]

  • Pocket Park - the Parish Council is responsible for the upkeep of the Pocket Park located on the Creaton Road in Hollowell, which includes mowing, maintenance of the trees and hedgerows, and maintenance of the play equipment. The latest playground inspection report can be requested from the Parish Clerk. The purchase of new equipment is organised by a group of local residents - see HPPAC page for further details.

  • The Miss Jane Letts (Hollowell) Charity is run independently by three parish councillors who are appointed as Trustees.  It was created in 1940 by a bequest from the estate of James William Boothe Letts. The bequest established an income to purchase coal or blankets for distribution amongst the “poor widows and other deserving poor” of the Parish of Hollowell & Teeton. In the mid 1990s, the terms of the Charity were altered so that it could contribute towards household electricity bills, rather than pay for coal​For details on how to apply, please visit the Jane Letts Charity page. 

  • Planning applications - any planning applications within the Parish will be discussed at a Parish Council meeting to determine our comments to Daventry District Council. Details of the Village Design Statement can be found under Useful Links on the right, and the latest planning applications can be found on the Daventry District Council Planning Portal

  • Grit Bins - these are provided and have been maintained by the County Council, however, Northamptonshire Highways notified the Parish Council (21/08/18) that two of the grit bins located on Church Hill, Hollowell, NN6 8RR would no longer be maintained and would be removed.  Please contact the Council with your comments on this issue by emailing the Clerk  (see details in letter on the right).
