About Meriden 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.

Council Volunteers

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.
