"We are deeply saddened to hear of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. On behalf of Councillors and the Clerk I express our condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family. Prince Philip dedicated over 80 years of service to the Country, firstly as a naval officer and for the past 69 years as an active consort to the sovereign. His dedication to the youth will be one of his lasting legacies through establishing the Duke of Edinburgh Awards and his patronage of the National Playing Fields Association for 64 years. This will have a lasting effect, as can be seen with countless established playing fields across the nation including our own in Willaston which was founded in 1952.
The Union flag at the war memorial was lowered to half-mast at the announcement of his passing and will remain at half-mast until the morning after the day of his funeral to observe this period of national mourning".
Cllr Craig Bailey JP, Chairman of the Council
Welcome to Willaston Parish Council
The Parish Council is the first tier of local government for Willaston, Cheshire East. The Council consists of 12 councillors who are elected every four years by the residents to represent their interests.
All Councillors are elected members who give up their time and expertise voluntarily for the benefit of the Willaston community.
Monthly meetings are usually held in St Luke's Church Hall although currently we are meeting via a virtual platform. Meeting dates and past minutes can be found on the Meetings page.
The Council was created in 1894, but today gains the majority of its powers through the Local Government Act 1972.
The Council is a planning consultee and author of the Willaston Neighbourhood Plan which informs local planning decisions.
