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 provide various services to the community including grass cutting, provision of play areas, tennis courts, litter picking (on our own land) and limited vegetation clearance.
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. Full Council meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of the month (full council meetings are not held in August or December). Committee meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month. Residents are able to address the council during the public participation session. Meetings are held in the Small Hall, Worplesdon Memorial Hall, Perry Hill, Worplesdon, GU3 3RF unless stated otherwise on the Notice of Meeting.
Our Parish includes the wards of Fairlands, Jacobs Well, Perry Hill and Wood Street Village. The Council comprises 16 councillors, the Clerk and Assistant Clerk.
There are currently two vacancies on the Parish Council. Please contact the Clerk to discuss the role being a councillor or click here for further details.
