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 November 17th - Agenda
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.

Fenland District Council (FDC) has published a draft Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) for consultation. It is intended this document will update the IDP which was adopted in February 2013.
The proposed draft IDP can be viewed on the FDC website at the following link: http://www.fenland.gov.uk/planningpolicy
The consultation is to run from 16th November to 6pm on 14th December 2015. If you wish to comment on the document, please respond within the specified time limits by email to:email@example.com
or by post to: Neighbourhood Strategy (Planning Policy) Team, Fenland District Council, County Road, March, Cambridgeshire, PE15 8NQ
The IDP provides support to Policy LP13 – Supporting and Managing the Impact of a Growing District of the Fenland Local Plan 2014. It also complements the Council’s adopted SPD on Developer Contributions which is also available for viewing on our website.
The IDP has been reviewed following the Council’s decision in November 2014 not to introduce a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) for the time being and the Government’s regulations regarding pooling restrictions for S106 contributions for new developments. All parish and town council’s and statutory and other providers were asked to identify their needs for the area earlier this year and these are set out in the Schedule to the IDP.
After the consultation closes, FDC will consider all representations received. Any amendments to the IDP will be set out in a report to Fenland’s Cabinet and Full Council in due course to consider adoption of the document.
FDC would welcome comments on this draft IDP which will help shape the final version of the document.
