Your Parish Council

The Parish Council is the grass roots level of Local Government being elected from residents of the Village. Unlike all other levels of Government the Parish Council is non-political with elected members representing only their interest in the Village of Coleshill.  

The vision of the Parish Council is to maintain Coleshill as an attractive and thriving village combining the delights of this area of outstanding natural beauty with the amenities of a modern forward looking community.
