Welcome to Culford, West Stow and Wordwell Parish Council

The Council

Parish Councils seek to improve community wellbeing and provide better services at a local level. Their activities fall into three main categories: representing the local community; delivering services to meet local needs; striving to improve quality of life and community wellbeing.

The Council serves, and makes decisions on behalf of, the villages and aims to keep everyone informed about important issues and on-going projects. Councillors are members of the community, elected by the community and they give their time, effort and resources without financial reward.

There are seven seats and elections to them take place every four years. The last election was in May 2019.

If you are new to Culford, West Stow or Wordwell our welcome pack will provide you with a wealth of useful information. There's some local information and history at the front and then information about, and links to, all sorts of local services and organisations.


Did you know that most houses in the parish are in a conservation area? This means that you need permission for most work that may affect the appearance or character of the village - even if such things would not normally need planning permission.
This applies from tree works to window frames - click on the planning tab, at the top of the page, to go to the planning page for further information and links.
