Parish Council > Councillors
Town and parish councils were established by Act of Parliament in 1894. The first formal meeting of Willoughby Parish Council was on 14 February 1895. Our role is to represent the interests of local people and improve the quality of life and the local environment.
Our responsibilities include monitoring and following up on issues related to highways, street lighting, community safety, housing, the playing field, the village pond, the allotments, litter, benches and shelters, public rights of way (footpaths and bridleways) and commenting on planning applications in the parish.
Each year we raise money for the services we provide through the ‘precept’, which forms a small percentage of the council tax levied by Rugby Borough Council.
