Welcome to the Perry Parish Council Village Website, this site has been designed as a ‘one stop shop’ and hopefully will be a valuable source of information and news for residents and visitors alike.

Perry is a beautiful village situated on the south side of Grafham Water which is approximately six miles south west of Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire.

You’ll find the latest news and information about Parish Council and community activities within the website.

The Parish Council meets on the first Wednesday of most months at 7:30pm in either the Baptist Church or Grafham Water Centre (see list of meeting dates for full details).

Elsewhere on this site you can find the minutes and agendas of the Council meetings.

The Parish Council considers planning applications within the parish and makes recommendations to the Planning Authority, Huntingdonshire District Council.  You can easily access current and past planning applications through our Planning page.

We have included a range of other information such as the Parish Council Annual Report, Standing Orders and Council policy documents.

The Chairman of the Parish Council, Nigel Noon says: “We hope that all visitors to the Perry Parish Council Website find it an useful and interesting resource and that it will be used as the first point of contact for village matters.  We would welcome feedback about the site, via the contact form or for matters of the Parish Council via the Clerk.
