Welcome to the Burwell Parish Council Website

Burwell is one of the larger and older villages in Cambridgeshire, situated on the edge of the Fens. The population today is over 8000: large enough to be interesting but small enough for people to interact. It’s a great community to live in and make friends. For more information about Burwell click Burwell Community website.

This is a new website for the Parish Council and we have tried to include as much information as possible. If you feel the site is missing information which could be of benefit to the community please contact the Parish Clerk.

Climate Change Action Plan


Burwell Parish Council recognises that the world is in a state of climate emergency, and acknowledges that we must act now to reduce our carbon footprint. Many have noticed the disturbing change in recent weather patterns, causing destruction globally in the form of fires and floods, crop failure and displacement. Millions of species are under threat of extinction, and the lives and welfare of our children and grandchildren is severely compromised.
