Alwoodley Parish Council was set up in May 2008 and consists of eleven elected Parish Councillors, the Clerk and the Lengthsman who both work part-time.

December Planning Committee meeting –  the next Planning Committee meeting will take place on Monday 3rd December at the later time of 7.00pm. The agenda will be available here. There is no Parish Council meeting in December.

Unwanted tradespeople and Cold Calling Control Zones – the Parish Council was recently contacted by a local resident who is very concerned about the increase in aggravated cold calling – visits by tradespeople to people living alone or vulnerable people in an attempt to persuade them to agree to work being carried out, often unnecessarily. Click the following link to read more about how to set up a Cold Calling Control Zone to tackle this problem.Cold calling

Alwoodley Book Event – the Alwoodley Book Event on 14th October was greatly enjoyed by all the children and parents who attended and we received some very positive feedback. We would like to thank everyone who participated – Susie Sparkles and her team, Jason Beresford, The Little Bookshop, Creation Station and our own Alwoodley WI.

The entertainment was fantastic and the craft activities first class. We have mentioned on several occasions – in last year’s newsletter, in articles and at our APM – that the Parish Council could not stage this event on a regular basis without volunteers from the wider community. One of our local Ward Councillors also wrote about this in his monthly article in North Leeds Life, but sadly nobody has come forward to offer any help and therefore we have decided that it is not feasible to repeat this event in the future.

January Parish Council meetings – the next Parish Council meeting will take place on Monday 14th January 2019 at 7.30pm (following the January Planning Committee meeting which will start at 6.30pm) Copies of both agendas will be available here.

The Parish Councillors are volunteers who are elected to serve a four year term of office. The next election will take place in May 2019.

Alwoodley Parish Council exists to represent the people of Alwoodley Parish as part of the local government structure of the City of Leeds. (The Parish Council is not part of the Church).

The Parish Council is funded through a local tax called the precept which is around £14 for a band D household – this has been increased by £2 for a Band D household this year. The Parish Council aims to use the precept for the benefit of residents to improve and enhance the local area.

More information about the Parish Council’s finances is available here

The Parish Council runs a small grants scheme for voluntary organisations in the parish.
