Collingtree Parish Council

Parish Councils are the most local tier of local governance and in Collingtree the PC has direct responsibility for services such as some street lighting and the management of the playing field.

It must also be consulted on a range of planning and highway proposals that affect the parish and is able to raise money through a local tax (precept) for projects that benefit its residents. 

Following a review in 2010, changes were made to the boundaries between the Nene Valley and East Hunsbury wards to equalise the number of electors. As a result the Collingtree Parish is divided between the two wards with the 'Collingtree North' (Collingtree Park) section coming under East Hunsbury ward and 'Collingtree South (the original Village) remaining in Nene Valley ward. This has now changed again. There continues to be 7 members of the Parish Council, with 3 from the north and 4 from the south.

Conservation Area

The centre of the old village was designated as a Conservation Area in 1978. The intention is to preserve the history and character of the High Street and adjoining areas, the 10 listed buildings and the unique layout of boundary walls and the use of local stone. Conservation Area status, gives the local authority the power to control changes to windows and other external features. A Management Review of the Conservation Area  was undertaken by the Borough Council in 2008 and the boundary of the area was extended.
