Welcome to the Hilton Parish Council website
Hilton Parish Council is here to serve our community. As an organisation we form part of your local government and must adhere to local government policies. Councillors are drawn from the parish and offer their time, unpaid, as elected representatives.
We have many functions but overall our prime objective is to manage, improve and preserve our village for the good of all.
Hilton is a unique community and a very desirable place to live, however we are facing many pressures. Your Parish Council is well placed to represent our community and work with Huntingdonshire District Council, Cambridgeshire County Council and National Government plus other authorities such as the Police, Highways England and transport groups to achieve the best for our community.
Would you like to become a Parish Councillor?
The Parish Council is the first tier of Local Government representing the local community, delivering services to meet local needs wherever possible, and improving quality of life and community well-being.
The Parish Council currently has a Councillor vacancy for co-option.
Would you like to join the Parish Council and help make decisions about how the Parish is run?
You can read a guide on what Parish Councillors might be expected to do (although this is very broad and covers all Town and Parish Councils, so don’t be scared!) in the Good Councillors Guide.
There are a few criteria you must be able to comply with:
To qualify a person must be a British subject, over 18 years old and an elector; or must reside within Hilton or within 4.8km of it; or occupy as owner or tenant any land or premises therein; or have their principal or only place of work there, and must not be disqualified from holding office as a Councillor.

If you would like to join us, please email the Clerk a brief CV and explanation about why you would like to be a Councillor by Friday 31st March and your application will be considered at the April meeting.—
