Worplesdon Parish Council was constituted in 1894. A parish council is the most ancient form of Local Government and has been in use in England since the 8th century.

The modern parish council is a statutory elected local authority, which acts as a voice for local opinion by keeping in close and regular contact with its electorate and provides a focus for voluntary organisations in the area.

We are here to help, but in order to be effective you need to let us know if you have any issues or concerns relating to the Parish.  Members of the public are welcome to attend any meeting of the Council.  We usually meet on the 4th Thursday of the month (full council meetings are not held in August or December).  Residents are able to address the council during the public participation session.

Our Parish includes the wards of Fairlands, Jacobs Well, Perry Hill and Wood Street Village. The Council currently comprises 16 councillors and the Clerk.
