Speeding in the Village

Speed limits are set for a reason and exceeding them is illegal. The minimum penalty for speeding is £100 fine and three points added to your licence. Receiving 12 or more points within three years may disqualify you from driving. 

If you’re a newly qualified driver and receive six points during the first two years after passing your test, your licence will automatically be cancelled (revoked). To get it back you’ll need to apply and pay for a new provisional licence and pass both theory and practical tests again.

Report that pot-hole!

Herefordshire Council's Smartphone App makes it easy to report issues about potholes, flytipping, dog mess and any public rights of way issues affecting the village from your mobile phone.

Just take a picture, upload it to the App (which will automatically pinpoint your location if you are at the problem area) and it will be sent directly to the highways management team to action.

The mobile app is free to download from the Herefordshire Council website now.

About us

Weobley Parish Council is made up of ten local residents who are elected every four years and volunteer their time, their expertise and their services.

As the first tier of local government, we hope to encourage input from local residents which in turn will help us to develop and maintain local facilities and services.

How we work

The work undertaken by the Parish Council is financed through a precept, which is an amount of money collected as part of your Council Tax.

This money is used to help improve local facilities and services in and around the village and for larger projects, the council tries to secure funding through any grants and awards that made be available.

About our Village

Weobley, pronounced 'Webley', is one of the largest villages and civil parishes in Herefordshire, situated just eight miles away from Leominster and 12 miles north-west of Hereford. Our name Weobley comes from 'Wibba's Ley', with a 'ley' being a term for a woodland glade whilst 'Wibba' is the name of a local Saxon landowner, so in effect Weobley means 'Wibba's woodland clearing' and even features in the Domesday Book.

Our quiet and picturesque village sits in the very heart of the Herefordshire lowlands, an area characterised by wide river valleys, arable farming, low hedges, steep wooded hills, beautiful orchards and extensive hop yards.  Over the years the village has changed from being a medieval wool trading centre, through glove making and ale brewing to the friendly village that it is today. We even saw a visit from King Charles I, who stayed in the village following the battle of Naseby in 1645.

Herefordshire's Talk Community

Talk Community aims to make Herefordshire a better place to work and live by offering a wide range of activities, events, training courses, business support and much, much more through a network of Community Hubs.

These Community Hubs help to bring residents together, alongside offering up to date health and wellbeing information and to connect people to services, groups and activities, both nearby and elsewhere across Herefordshire and are run by staff and / or volunteers from the local community with support from Herefordshire Council.
