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 January and August) 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 two main parish notice boards, opposite the Crown Inn and at the Parish Hall. Click here to read the Meeting Information page.
All Woolhope parishioners are invited to attend those meetings. There is always a ten minute slot allocated before the official meeting starts for parishioners to raise any items or issues with councillors, which may be discussed informally there and then or 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.
Parishioners can also raise issues for discussion through the Clerk in writing, or through the contact the council form on this site.
