The Parish Council

Full council

These are all of the members of the Parish Council. There are 6 councillors and one clerk.Councillors are elected every four years, and anyone can stand for election as long as they are a resident of the parish or live within 3 miles of it. Being a Councillor is a voluntary position and done because the people who stand want to try to improve life for their community. We are the first tier of local government and deal with things like supplying and emptying bins, maintenance of the recreation grounds, and improving play facilities. These are amongst our "statutory  " duties. On top of this we try to work with our partners including the Borough and County Councils to deal with any concerns residents might have about things not directly under our control, such as dog mess, traffic problems and policing issues. The Clerk is the only paid employee of the council and she works 37 hours a month from her home address. The clerks role is mainly administrative ie carrying out the instructions of the Council and she is not directly involved in decision making. 

Cllr Derek Greedy

Cllr Derek Greedy

Derek Greedy moved into the Parish some 15 years ago when he came to Ansley Village from Sawston in Cambridgeshire.  He is a keen gardener and through his occupation as a waste management advisor is an avid environmentalist.  You will often see him wandering the streets collecting litter which is one of his pet hates. 

Derek has a keen interest in sport both from the armchair, as a live spectator as well as playing his favored squash 2-3 times per week.  Nothing gives him more pleasure than the way the Ansley recreation field is being to put to good use in supporting football for the younger members of the Parish.

 Derek Joined the Parish Council in 2005 and has worked hard to try and improve the ambience within the village and was instrumental in getting the planted areas in Birmingham Road, Ansley installed.  It is hoped that this work can be continued throughout the Parish in future years. 

Derek is married with two daughters and 3 grandchildren and now feels well at home in Ansley Parish.
