The Parish Council is made up of a maximum of 8 Councillors and a Clerk. The Council usually meets on the first Tuesday of every month (excluding July and December) in the meeting room at the Parish Hall at 7.30 p.m. – check the Events Calendar for future dates.
Notification of meetings plus agenda can always be found at least three days prior on the parish notice boards. Click here to read the Meeting Information page.
All Woolhope parishioners are invited to attend those meetings. There is usually a short period allocated at the start of the meeting for parishioners to raise any items or issues with councillors, which will usually be added to the agenda of the next meeting for formal discussion. After that slot, parishioners are invited to stay and listen without disrupting the meeting. To include something as an agenda item for the meeting, please contact the Clerk at least two weeks before the meeting date.
Parishioners can also raise issues for discussion through the Clerk in writing, or through the contact the council form on this site.
