Wychavon District Council

District Councils are sub-divisions within the County Councils.  Our District Council is Wychavon. The district covers 664km2 of the southern and eastern part of the County of Worcestershire and is the largest of the six Worcestershire districts, including the towns of Droitwich.  With a population of 116,900, the area is made up of the three towns of Droitwich Spa, Evesham and Pershore, and nearly 100 villages and hamlets.

Headquarters are at the Civic Centre in Pershore.  There are also Community Contact Centres in Droitwich, where residents can access district and Worcestershire County Council services, and at Evesham, where this access is further enhanced with Job Centre Plus and Police services under one roof.

The District Council is responsible for Council Tax, bin collections and has many other responsibilities. The Wychavon responsibility most likely to affect our residents directly is PLANNING.  Whether you are building something yourself or are affected by someone else’s project, Wychavon is the responsible body and you need to contact them.  It is helpful if you also contact Badsey and Aldington Parish Council, as the Council is very mindful of residents’ views when it comments on applications.  The Parish Council is always consulted by Wychavon on planning within the Parish.

District Councillors are elected every FOUR years for each Ward within the District of Wychavon.  The next elections to the District Council will be in May 2019. Our District Councillor is Mark Goodge (Conservative Party) and he attends Parish Council meetings whenever he is able to do so.
