Crowland Parish Council
Crowland Parish Council provides local services for approximately 4000 people living within the parish, most in the town of Crowland. It owns 25 acres of parkland and greens and manages a further 16 acres of grassed area on behalf of other agencies and also the Kissing Ground. It also owns and lets over 170 acres of farmland plus manages a similar amount on behalf of the Normanton estate. Some 400 trees are owned and maintained by the Parish Council plus hedgerows and shrubs within its land holdings together with the Centenary and Millenium Oak plantations.
Other services provided include waste bins, allotment gardens, benches, bus shelters plus the recreation equipment and skatepark on the Snowden field which also accommodates the sports pavilion, youth building and car park, the sports hall on the South View School site, and rooms on Hall Street. The Parish Council employs 2 full time and 5 part time employees, and is run by up to 15 elected volunteer members. It is directly funded from Council Tax (the Precept), currently costing each paying household around £1 per week. Additional income is earned from rents and hiring fees, plus administrative payments for services carried out for other agencies, such as toilet cleaning and litter collection.
Crowland is a thriving community and has plenty of organisations to keep everyone busy.
