On line Parish Council meetings

As we are not able to meet physically due to COVID-19 restrictions, Parish Council meetings are now held on line. If you wish to attend as a member of the public, please contact the clerk by phone or e-mail before 6pm on the day of the meeting.

We also put up draft minutes on the website as soon as is practical after each meeting.

The Parish Council (PC) is very well aware that a field on the A51 close to Okell's Nursery has been subject to development that is not compliant with an approved planning permission. The PC has raised the issue with CWaC Planning Enforcement and our local Borough Councillors.

The PC understands that a new planning application has been submitted to CWaC that would seek to formalise, retrospectively, the development that has taken place which goes well beyond the permission already granted. Until that application is validated and published the PC cannot comment formally on the application.

It may be helpful for residents to know that the PC has always strongly objected
when planning permissions have been ignored because it believes it is very unfair on the majority of applicants who adhere to their permissions which may have been amended as part of the planning process. It also believes that unless permissions are followed it could lead to a free for all which would not benefit the community.

If and when an application does come forward the PC will consider it objectively taking into consideration the policies of both the Local Plan and the Tarvin Neighbourhood Plan. In addition, the impact of the proposal on the environment, on the community and the views of residents, as far as they are known, will be taken into account.


Tarvin Parish Council is part of the first tier of local government. Our role is to represent the local community, provide services to meet local needs and improve the quality of life for our community. We represent Parish views and objectives to other bodies, in particular Cheshire West and Chester Borough Council (CWaC), the upper tier of local government.

We aim to operate in an open, democratic way and to the highest standards of stewardship given that we are spending public money and the Council is part of the community. All Parish Council meetings are open meetings and members of the public are most welcome to attend and listen to the debates.

If you want to come along to a meeting but don't want to stay until the end that is not a problem. Come and join us and then leave when you wish to do so. All we ask is that you come and go quietly. Meetings are normally held on the 4th Monday evening each month and are held in the Edna Rose Room, Tarvin Community Centre, Meadow Close, Tarvin normally starting at 7:15pm. The first 15 minutes of each meeting is a public forum where anyone can have his or her say on any local matter.
