What We Do
The role of the Parish Council is to represent the interests of the whole community. It is a part of local government supporting the democratic process. Local Councils provide a focus for the community to identify concerns and projects, and endeavour to solve them locally themselves. The Parish Council is a corporate body, and a legal entity, separate from that of its Members, and is accountable to the local community.
A Councillors main task is to bring local issues to the attention of the Council, participate in debate and help the Council to make decisions on behalf of the local community.
Parish Councillors are elected representatives, not volunteers or employees, and serve for a 4 year term, unless co-opted or elected in a bye-election when they serve until the next election. They must apply the law and comply with the Code of Member Conduct.
Meet the Council
The next meeting of the Parish council will be held in the Village Hall on Tuesday 11th October @7:00pm

Access to Ormesby Broad
Parishioners of Ormesby St. Michael have been at liberty to access the Trinity Broads from the Parish Staithe since it was given to the village through Government Enclosure Awards back in the early 19th Century.
If you are a resident of Ormesby St Michael and wish to use the Broad via the Parish Staithe please read, sign and return the Terms and Conditions below.
We at the Parish Council take the safety of our Parishioners very seriously. That’s why we have implemented the Speed Awareness Monitoring (SAM) scheme-like the one pictured above-throughout the village.
The portable unit will be deployed at varying sites along the main A149 as agreed with the Highways Agency where it will remind drivers of the speed limits imposed at any given site.
Data will be collected from the units and analysed to determine levels of vehicle speed and volume through the village. Any patterns or trends of concern can then be passed on to the appropriate enforcement agencies.
Early indications are (see below) that the vast majority of drivers are keeping within the legal limits; however, we’ll be keeping a close eye to ensure that it stays that way!
