Welcome to Meriden Parish Council

We hope that you find the information useful and readily available.

Your Parish Council

Meriden Parish Council was created in Statute in 1894.  The Rural District Council came into existence on 1st January 1895 in accordance with the Local Government Act of 1894 and comprised 17 parishes including Meriden.  Parish Councils are the first level of democracy with a range of powers.  They help with decisions on local services and Council policies.

Councillors are not paid and have to abide by a local government code of conduct. They must declare any financial interests in the parish – such as employment, businesses and land ownership. Councillors must also declare a personal or prejudicial interest in any matter being discussed at a parish council meeting.

All parish council meetings are now going ahead as normal via Zoom Video Conferencing.
For information please contact the clerk on 07767 162423 or email clerk@meridenparishcouncil.org.uk

If you have any Questions or Concerns to be aired at the next council meeting  please e-mail them to our Clerk and we will hear and discuss anything we get from the public.

Meriden‘s Neighbourhood Plan now enters an eight week Regulation 16 consultation period.

I have been proud to be associated with a group of volunteers led by parish councillors who have devoted long evenings and days over 5 years to develop this document for the benefit of the whole community ensuring Meriden remains an attractive place to live and work.

It is an important plan for Meriden where it will protect our history and plan for our future.

Please read it either on line or you can request via the Parish Clerk a hardcopy to read and return.
