The parish of High Offley includes the wards of Woodseaves and Shebdon. Woodseaves is the largest settlement in the parish, with housing to both the east and west of the A519. The Shropshire Union Canal runs through the parish to the southwest of High Offley and Woodseaves, with the Shebdon aqueduct and wharf in the west of the parish.
High Offley Parish Council has seven Councillors and usually meets on the second Thursday of the month at 19:30 in Woodseaves Village Hall. All meetings are open to the public and there is a forum before the start of the meeting, at which members of the public can raise concerns and ask questions. All meetings are advertised on the council notice boards, Facebook and the parish council website, so why not see for yourself? You would be very welcome.
Residents can bring anything that concerns them to the attention of the parish council, either directly, or through the clerk. If matters raised are not the responsibility of the council, the clerk will provide details of the proper authority to be contacted.
Once elected, parish councillors sit on the council for a maximum of four years, following which they must stand for re-election, if they wish to continue in the role. People can also be co-opted onto the council, in some circumstances. Whatever the case, councillors are not paid and their role is entirely voluntary.
