Open Planning Applications

Following the retirement of one of our longest serving councillors, we would be delighted to hear from you if you would be interested to become a council member. As a parish councillor, you will be someone your community will look to for help, guidance and support - a community leader  - with the power to influence decisions for the benefit of the people you serve. 

 

Gadbridge Road Resurfacing

The long awaited resurfacing of Gadbridge Road is due to begin on 27th July, with some parking restrictions and closures expected whilst work takes place.

Mobile 'report-it' App now available

A new mobile app makes it easy to report issues to Herefordshire Council 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 mobile 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 and links to the most up to date version so it doesn't take up valuable space on your mobile, tablet or desktop. 

SK8 Skate Park

The newly completed skate park is already attracting skaters from near and far, enjoying the chance to experience the free design of the “street plaza”. So whether you're a newbie or an experienced skater, you'll find SK8 offers something different.

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.

Could you be a Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator?

Neighbourhood Watch is about people getting together with their neighbours to take action to reduce crime by developing a close relationship between community members and the local police. Are you . . . . 

  • comfortable with talking to local residents about supporting the scheme and encouraging them to join and be the first point of contact for local residents if they need to get or offer information
  • able to keep in contact with the police – telling them about any suspicious or criminal incidents and willing to help maintain the scheme by handing out leaflets and newsletters, property marking and putting up NHW signs

If this is you…. why not get in touch. To find out more, please contact us by email at [email protected]

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. The name Weobley comes from 'Wibba's Ley', a ley being a woodland glade and Wibba being a local Saxon landowner, so 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.
