Elm Parish Council
Elm is one of the largest parishes in Fenland District, covering 6,000 hectares of rich agricultural land.
The parish is made up of the villages of Elm and Fridaybridge and the smaller settlements of Coldham and Rings End, which together with a number of scattered and isolated properties has a total population of around 3,500.
The villages and settlements within the parish have easy access to the Fenland market towns of March to the south and Wisbech to the north. Peterborough and King’s Lynn are both around 30 minutes' travelling time for residents of the parish.
Elm Parish Council meets on a monthly basis; usually on a Tuesday, at 7.00pm in the Parish Council’s office at Begdale Road, Elm.
Agendas for Parish Council meetings, which include an Open Forum of 15 minutes duration, are published on the Parish Council’s notice boards in each of the villages/settlements: the locations of the notice boards are: the Pocket Park and outside the village store opposite the Cemetery in Elm; adjacent to the Clocktower at Fridaybridge; the “bus shelter” layby at Coldham; the bus shelter on March Road at Rings End.
Agendas and minutes are also published on this website. Next meeting is scheduled for December 17th.
In addition to monthly meetings, the Parish Council holds an Annual Assembly, in April each year, to which members of the public are invited to engage with the Parish Council and raise any issues of community concern.

NOTICE OF ELECTION
Election of a District Councillor for the area of ELM AND CHRISTCHURCH WARD to be held on Thursday, 19th December 2013
Notice of Vacancy
Notice of Vacancy in the Office of Councillor for Elm Parish Council
Following the recent resignation of one councillor and the death of another, there are two vacant seats on Elm Parish Council (one for the Coldham ward and one for the Elm and Fridaybridge ward).
Although the District Council, as the Elections Authority, has given statutory notice of these vacancies, there has been no public request for the holding of by-elections to fill the vacancies.
It is therefore necessary for the Parish Council to fill the vacancies by co-option. Co-option Notice.
The longest serving member of Elm Parish Council, Malcolm (known to all as "Mac") Cotterell MBE died on 23 October. He always did his best to support the residents of the Parish of Elm and will be sorely missed.
