Statement – Mistley Parish Council – Proposed Community Governance Review

“Mistley is a large Village. Our Village is unique and we wish to maintain and protect our identity, our cultural and historical heritage includes our Mistley Towers – two classical Towers which were designed in 1776 and are now looked after by English Heritage. We have many listed buildings in our Village and within the Conservation Area. We also have Furze Hill Wood and our many Veteran Oak Trees including the famous Old Knobbley. Our Swans have been in Mistley since the 17th Century and the Swans have made our Village their home. Mistley Parish Council is opposed to its historic Village been urbanised.
Any Community Governance Review is meant to make sure that local governance is effective and convenient, and that it reflects the identities and interests of local communities.
The boundaries of most parishes make sense; they represent clear community or geographical boundaries. Mistley Parish Council feels that this is the case for Mistley and it is totally opposed to any mergers or changes involving Mistley. However, if Lawford Parish Council and Manningtree Town Council wish to merge, then Mistley Parish Council has no issues with this”.
