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. Members of the public are welcome 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.

Parish Councillors

Parish Councillors work together to serve the community. They come from different backgrounds and bring a diverse range of skills. Teamwork is important as no individual Councillor can act in isolation.

Six councillors were re-elected on 6th May 2021: Sue Pusey (Chairman), Anthony Wilkinson (Vice Chairman), Grahame Pusey, Jo Hooper, Hilary Vitkus and Sue Lacey. A vacancy has recently been filled by Kevin Ready.

More information about the role of a Parish Councillor can be found on this website. If interested in applying, please email the Clerk.

Westcott Annual Parish Meeting

The meeting was held on Tuesday 10th May 2023 and the Chairman of Westcott Parish Council read out a report summarising all the council’s activities during the past year. You can read the report here (when the site maintenance is complete).
