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 meetings were held virtually from July 2020 to May 2021. 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.
