PLAYGROUND AND PUBLIC LOO CLOSURE
Following the UK Government’s announcement on placing further restrictions on the movement of people in order to endeavour to stem the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Mistley Parish Council has closed the children’s playgrounds at Furze Hill and the Welcome Home Field until further notice. The public lavatory at Furze Hill is also closed.
For your own safety and those of your children, please do NOT use the play equipment.
As advised by HM Government, the situation nationally is extremely serious. We would like to take this opportunity to implore our parishioners to PLEASE heed the Prime Minister’s instructions and STAY AT HOME unless your journey is absolutely essential. Only by doing so can we ALL play our part in halting the spread of this terrifying virus and in doing so, potentially save the lives of our loved ones and neighbours.
Please keep safe at this unprecedentedly dangerous and difficult time for the entire country.

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”.
