Parish Council

Horningsea is part of the Fulbourn Ward of South Cambridgeshire District Council. There are 7 Parish Councillors and a clerk. The Parish Council meets every second month on the last Wednesday at 7.30pm in the Village Hall (May, July, September, November, January and March).


Reporting non-emergencies online

Non-emergency situations can now be reported to the police online if people would rather do so than call 101. In October last year Cambridgeshire Constabulary re-launched their website with added functionality to report non-emergencies via specially designed forms or a live webchat.The live webchat option enables people to communicate directly with a member of staff in the control room, just as would be the case when calling 101. Online forms are processed in the same way as a call and the person reporting can expect a response within 24 hours.

Due to the high level of demand there are often queues when calling 101. Reporting online is quick, easy and free of charge. Superintendent James Sutherland said: “In the digital age people are doing more and more online. I’m pleased that our website now has increased capability to allow people to contact us in this way. “The system went through a thorough testing process and has been used successfully thousands of times since being introduced.“Feedback from a recent survey suggested that some people wanted to communicate directly with a person rather than submitting an online form. The webchat function allows people to do exactly that.

“Reports submitted online are treated in the same way as when people call 101 and will receive the same outcome.” To view the online reporting section of the constabulary’s website visit The live webchat function is available by clicking on the green icon on the bottom right of the page.


Concessionary Bus passes

The County Council is aware that over the next eighteen months the amount of renewals of the concessionary bus passes is going to be potentially very high. It is the responsibility of the pass holder to check when their pass is up for renewal and then to contact the County Council to get a new one.

In order to aid you to renew your pass the County Council have set up a new form which allows you to easily renew online. This online form can be found at If you have any problems with the online form you can also call the number on the back your pass or go to the library who will be able to help.

Superfast broadband is here!

Great news! Superfast broadband is now available to homes and businesses in this area. Check with your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or use a broadband comparison site to see if you can get it. Connecting Cambridgeshire is working to get as many people as possible connected to the new fibre broadband network, although some premises may be harder to reach and will have to wait a little longer for better broadband.

A coverage map can be seen on the Connecting Cambridgeshire website ‘my area’ pages at together with advice on the benefits of faster Internet access and how to get it.
