Willoughby Waterleys Parish Council

Serving the people of Willoughby Waterleys

,Welcome to Willoughby Waterleys.

Your Parish Council is made up of five councillors who meet regularly to make decisions on the work and direction of the Parish Council. As an elected body they are responsible to you, the people they represent. Attending a council meeting is the best way to find out what they do. Look in the Meetings Calendar to find dates for our public meetings.

Each year a sum of money called a 'precept' is collected through your council tax. This money is used by the Council to improve facilities and services for local people. We can also apply for grants and loans where applicable.

So, who are your Councillors? We have our Chairman Philip Leech of Yew Tree Close, Willoughby, David Campbell-Kelly also of Yew Tree Close, Willoughby, Dr Arthur Lyons of Low Barn, Main Street, Willoughby, Emma Clanfield of Yew Tree Close , Willoughby and Kate West at The Old Post Office, Main Street, Willoughby.

County Councillor - Blake Pain of Bruntingthorpe

District Councillor- Neville Hall
