Welcome to Finham Parish Council


Thursday 21st February 2019 at 19:00 in the Library at Finham Park School Green Lane. 

Please see below the warning from Tony SwannNeighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator in our area.

I have just been contacted by the Police and asked to warn residents that someone in our area has just received a call claiming to be from BT asking to discuss their BT broadband. Fortunately their caller ID identified that the call was being made from a mobile phone. When the resident queried this the caller hung up.

Please pass this info round, especially to anyone who may not be so vigilant and warn them not to divulge ANY personal details to phone-callers.

All members of the Finham Community are welcome to come along, the agenda is on the web site 5 days before the meeting

The Parish Council is now officially in place and you have elected 10 councillors to represent you they are listed on the Councillor tab.

Did you know that up until 1965 Finham was part of Stoneleigh Parish and was represented by five Parish Councillors until transfer into Coventry on 1st  April 1965

Finham is aiming to be a good Parish Council: i.e. a Council that

•  plays a vital part in representing the interests of the communities it serves

•  improves the quality of life of local people and the local environment

•  influences other decision makers, for example, in planning matters

•  delivers services to meet local needs

•  works with other groups in the community to develop the community and provide better services to the electors

Role of Parish Councils

Parishes are the smallest areas of civil administration in England and Town and Parish Councils provide the statutory tier of local government closest to the people. (Civil parishes should not be confused with Church of England ecclesiastical parishes and their Parochial Church Councils.)

Town and Parish Councils are an essential part of the structure of local democracy and have a vital role in acting on behalf of the communities they represent.


  • give views, on behalf of the community, on planning applications and other proposals that affect the parish
  • undertake projects and schemes that benefit local residents
  • work in partnership with other bodies to achieve benefits for the parish
  • alert relevant authorities to problems that arise or work that needs to be undertaken
  • help the other tiers of local government keep in touch with their local communities.

The Parish Council has many Powers and Duties all regulated by various Acts of Parliament
