The next Parish Council meeting on the 21st June will be back in the Village Hall commencing at 7:00pm. Please see below the Risk Assessment for the meeting together. A layout plan will be displayed at the venue on the night.

Risk Assessment For Returning to Face to Face meetings

Please note that the Maximum number allowed in the Hall is 23, made up of 15 spaces for Councillors and staff and 8 seats for the public. Everyone should bring their own masks to wear inside. These can be removed when seated, but must be worn at all other times.

As per the Government recommendation, the circulation of paper documents is suspended, so please print and bring you own copies for the meeting. You will be able to find these under Council Meetings, Minutes, Agendas, and Planning Addendums.

This 170-year-old Wellingtonia is at risk of destruction

Residents, Borough and Parish Councillors are objecting to RBWM’s planning officers’ decision to allow the tree to be felled and a campaign to protect this landmark tree which started in the village is now gathering wider attention.


On Saturday 22nd May,  On The Green, Datchetresidents can add messages of protest to a banner on which has been funded by Datchet Parish Council.

Children are also being encouraged to bring their ‘Save the Tree’ pictures.

#SaveDatchetTree has been set up on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; banners have been hung around the village; and residents are writing letters of protest to RBWM and Direct Line asking both to honour their environmental and climate commitment and find alternatives to felling the tree.

Saving this tree is within RBWM’s power

A giant cedar in Windsor was saved in nearly identical circumstances. #SaveDatchetTree is simply asking that RBWM gives Datchet’s landmark Wellingtonia the same consideration. Felling this tree would detract from the natural environment and would show disregard for the intrinsic character and beauty of the riverside area and the wider benefit of its trees.

As a consequence of the Returning Officer having received fewer than ten written requests for a Parish election by the deadline of the 31st March 2021 the Parish Council, as a statutory requirement, will now fill its vacancy by co-option.

A person is eligible to be co-opted to the council provided they are qualified pursuant to section 79 of the 1972 Local Government Act and are not disqualified pursuant to section 80 of the same Act. The Council will require candidate(s) to certify in writing that they meet the requirements and are not disqualified. Full details about the provisions of 1972 Act can be provided on request.

Interested individuals should write to the Clerk to the Council at the above address, setting out their name and address together with why they might have an interest in becoming part of the Council and what experience and qualifications they could bring. The Council will need to fairly consider if candidates are suitable for co-option and to do this all candidates will be asked to complete a person specification.

Candidates will be invited to put forward their case for co-option to members at a Council meeting in July/August 2021. Following this, the meeting will come to a close and the council will move into a Part II meeting to come to a decision. Individuals will be advised of the decision, in writing, as soon as practical after the meeting.

Should an individual be offered co-option and accept, it will be necessary for that person to complete a Declaration of Acceptance of Office and the completion of a copy of the Register of Members Financial and Other Interests. Compliance with a Code of Conduct will also be required.

I am happy to provide further information to interested individuals on what the role of councilor entails.

Contact can be made by calling the Parish Office on Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9.00am to 15.30pm, on 01753 773499, or Mobile number 07862 013161, or by email to clerk@datchetparishcouncil.gov.uk.
