Introduction to the Parish Council

Wellington is a Parish Council in Herefordshire.  It comprises a group of volunteer Councillors, supported by a qualified Clerk, working hard to make Wellington a really GOOD place to live!

The Council meets on the first Thursday of every month at 7.30pm in the Community Centre – the exceptions to this are January and August when there are no planned regular meetings. In April or May we normally hold the Annual Parish Meeting. Occasionally special Parish Council meetings or Open Parish Meetings are called when there are important issues to discuss or present.

Agendas and Minutes of meetings can be read on this website

Please feel free to contact the Clerk or any of the Parish Councillors if you would like to bring something to their attention – there is also a public forum section included on every Parish Council meeting agenda.

As a result of the new Localism Act, the Code of Conduct for Parish Councillors has been revised and Wellington Parish Council has agreed to adopt the same Code of Conduct as Herefordshire Council, which when combined with our own Standing Orders, provides our Parishioners with reassurance that all Council business is dealt with in the appropriate manner and within the law.

As part of this new Code of Conduct, all Councillors are required to complete a statement of Discloseable Pecuniary Interests and these can be accessed visiting the Herefordshire Council website or via the Council Business link above (click on Your Parish Councillors).
