About Your Council
Westcott Parish Council represents the interests of the community in the village of Westcott, Buckinghamshire. Meetings take place at six weekly intervals at 7.30pm at Westcott Cricket Club and members of the public are invited to attend.
Your parish council would love to see more people coming along and getting involved! Shortly after the start of each meeting there is a fifteen minute public forum during which members of the public can raise local issues and question the Council.
After the public forum everyone is welcome to stay for the meeting of the council, however, during the formal meeting only elected members and the Clerk have the right to speak. Attending is a great way for residents of the parish to find out what is going on in the village, and be informed of issues that might affect them.
Westcott Parish Meeting
At the end of every year the Chairman of Westcott Parish Council reads a report summarising all the council’s activities during the year. Last year’s report was read at the 2019 Annual Parish Meeting and the full transcript can be read on the website.
