The next meeting for the council will be on Wednesday March 20th at Howsham Village Hall at 7.45pm.If you would like to be a councillor, there is one seats left, or wish to participate in anyway, please contact the Clerk on

Before that will be the Annual Parish Meeting which is an opportunity to come together as a community and hear what has been going on in the Parish from the local voluntary organisations, the Parish Council, North Lincs Councillors, as well as an open forum to discuss the needs of the community and give direction to your elected officials. The meeting will commence at 7.15pm prior to Full Council on the 20th of March also at Howsham Village Hall. 

The council has received a lot of comments about the state of Cadney Road Brigg as far as its passability during the last cold snap. North Lincs Council Leader, Cllr. Rob Waltham did attend the last Parish Council meeting and assured the council that the road is to be reassessed for safety and the council is looking into as many ways as it can to ensure safe passage on the road in Icy conditions. The council has also talked to Lincolnshire County Council and Bigby Parish Council and they are aware of the difficulties on that road and we are working towards more solutions in the future.

Fly Tipping

Sadly there have been many cases of fly tipping being reported in the Cadney Bridge Area of the Parish and we thought it was time to raise your awareness once again. The council reports cases to North Lincolnshire Council who we work with on prevention and trying to prosecute individuals. If you see a case of fly tipping please report it to North Lincs Council

If you see any fly tipping please leave rubbish undisturbed so council officers can take pictures and gather evidence as well as for your own safety. We would like to keep Cadney cum Howsham a clean and safe place to live.


Neighbourhood Watch

The community in Cadney are working on building a Neighbourhood Watch scheme. If Howsham residents would like to participate and build their own neighbourhood watch team, please let the Clerk know via email and he will collect names to see if this is a viable project.
