Welcome to Broadway Parish Council 

Broadway lies at the foot of the Cotswold Hills in the south-eastern tip of Worcestershire and dates back at least 2000 years. Broadway is known, worldwide, as a tourist destination and is often referred as 'The Jewel of the Cotswolds'. The village has several historic buildings including the 12th century St. Eadburgha's Church and the 14th century Abbott's Grange and Priors Manse. During the 1600's Broadway was an important staging post for the horse-drawn coaches travelling from Worcester to London and it was at this time that several inns and hostelries opened, including the famous Lygon Arms, which still today attracts visitors from all over the world. The Gordon Russell Heritage Centre which is in Russell Square, just off the High Street, is located on the site of the original factory and celebrates the life and works of the famous furniture maker. Broadway Tower is situated on the top the escarpment and gives visitors a fantastic view of the village and surrounding countryside. 

Parish Councils

Parish councils are statutory bodies. Members are elected for a term of four years and councils are funded principally by an annual precept. Income and expenditure for the next financial year are calculated in the form of estimates. The net amount (the precept) is added to council tax, collected by the county, borough or district council (principal authorities) and paid to parishes in two six-monthly instalments. Parish and town councils can apply for other funding such as grant and funding awards, but they do not receive funds direct from central government, as principal authorities do.

Council meetings

The people of Broadway are represented by thirteen Parish Councillors, one District Councillor & one County Councillor. Between them, they look after the concerns of the village, including:  planning, highways, footpaths, the activity park, mowing, and the Parish precept. The Council meets in the Parish Office at 5 Russell Square, Broadway, WR12 7AP.  Click here for Timetable of Meetings.
