Local Information

Wooler Parish Council

Wooler Parish Council has a long interesting history and a reputation for being non-political. There are ten Parish Councillors who are elected for a four-year term of office. The post of chairman usually changes annually and occasionally bi-annually. The part-time clerk is the only employed person working for the council and deals with all clerical and accounting matters. A village appraisal has been undertaken and a Village Design Statement was published in 2001 after local consultation. The Parish Council is financed by precept and has powers to raise the precepts for items such as seats, streets, lighting etc.

Tillside Parish Council

There are 14 councillors (6 from Chatton Ward, 3 from Hetton, 3 from Lilburn and 2 from Chillingham). Meetings are held every other month, usually on the second Thursday, in Chatton Parish Hall.
