As the first level of democracy in the UK, Parish Councils have many duties. Add to this the need for transparency and we are reminded that the often-overlooked website is a key part of a Parish Council’s ability to carry out these duties in a compliant manner. 

Wouldham Parish Council Vision Statement 2024/2025

Wouldham Parish Council’s vision is to improve the quality of life for everyone who lives, works and travels through Wouldham Parish, both now and in the future.

To fulfil the vision in 2024/25 the Wouldham Parish Council will:

Deliver excellent services and value for money in everything we do, by:

  • Continuously upgrading the Council’s accounting system to allow for continued growth

Listen to our residents, keep them informed of local news and developments and always represent their best interests, by:

  • Providing representation from the council at more local events, to give residents more opportunities to interact with their local councillors;
  • Provide representation to support improvements to transport infrastructure and services.

  • Using local services and tradespeople, wherever practical, to carry out work for the council.

Protect our local environment by:
