What is being proposed?

We received a petition from residents in the parish of Orgreave proposing that the area of the existing parish of Orgreave should be altered – to reduce its area to only the settlement of Orgreave, and to create a new parish to cover the southern part of the Waverley settlement. 

We are now consulting on four options:

1. No change to the existing arrangements.

2. Reducing the existing parish of Orgreave to cover only the settlement of Orgreave, and to create a new parish to cover the southern part of the Waverley settlement. This is as proposed in the petition from residents.

3. Creating a new parish for the whole of the Waverley settlement. The parish of Orgreave would then cover only the settlement of Orgreave and the parish of Catcliffe would cover only the settlement of Catcliffe.

4. Creating a new area without a parish council to cover the whole of the Waverley settlement. The parish of Orgreave would then cover only the settlement of Orgreave and the parish of Catcliffe would cover only the settlement of Catcliffe.

The below maps show each of these four options.

The review would also include consideration of whether any new parish should have a parish council and what name and style any new council should be known by, and what the electoral arrangements should be for any new or altered parish.
