  Welcome to the Parish Council website

Saturday Drop In Surgery - 29 July 2017 - Galleywood Library

Meet your local Councillors - Councillor Stephanie Troop and Councillor John Turkentine will be in attendance.  No appointment necessary. If you would like to speak with a local Councillor regarding a matter you would like to raise, please come along.

Consultation - Parking Restrictions? Yes or No - You Decide - Arnold Way and Sharpington Close

Please find further details on the Consultation page of the website.


In 2015 a health and safety assessment revealed that an elderly Willow at Pipers Tye was at risk and on 4 August 2015 Essex County Council took the decision to swiftly remove the tree.

Galleywood Parish Council undertook a consultation exercise with parishioners as to whether or not the tree should be replaced.  This culminated in a vote being taken at the Annual Parish Forum at the Galleywood Heritage Centre in 2016.  The majority of parishioners present voted against a replacement tree being planted.

We have now received a new request from a parishioner for consideration to be given to the planting of a Japanese Flowering Cherry (Prunus Kanzan) at Pipers Tye, and we are therefore relaunching the consultation to parishioners.  We are keen to hear your views so that a balanced and fair decision can be taken.  Please send your comments to the Clerk by email or telephone 01245 358898.

The consultation period will close on 11 August 2017, and the matter will be placed on the Council Agenda 4 September 2017.
