Eight Ash Green is still a relatively small rural Essex village lying near the border of the English counties of Essex and Suffolk. It is situated just outside and to the North-west of Colchester – Britain’s Oldest Recorded town. Eight Ash Green has a population of around 1.200 consisting of about 860 households.
The village itself dates back to medieval times and has a well-documented history although it wasn’t until 1949 that all the land south of the Colne, comprising parts of Stanway, West Bergholt, Copford and Aldham, was transferred to and became the new civil parish of Eight Ash Green.
The village is part of the Colchester Borough Council seat of West Bergholt & Eight Ash Green, and has its own Parish Council. All agendas, minutes and annual reports of the Parish Council and its working parties & sub-committees can be found on this site through the main menu under Parish Council.
