About Selwood Parish Council

Selwood Parish Council covers a scattered rural community consisting of a number of hamlets and villages to the West, East and South of Frome in Somerset.

  • East Ward: Tytherington, Blatchbridge, Rodden, East and West Woodlands, Feltham.
  • West Ward: Spring Gardens, Oldford.

The two wards are represented by councillors as shown under the Parish Council tab. There is a village hall and church (St Katharine’s) in East Woodlands and All Saints Church Rodden.

Please contact the Parish Clerk if you have any needs for information to be received in a different format e.g. large print

The Parish Council has a range of duties concerned with the quality of life of our residents including:-

  • Setting the annual precept (local rate) to cover the Council’s running costs including expenditure on administration, amenity areas, grants and capital projects. Annual production of accounts for public accountability.
  •  Liaison with the local police on crime, security and traffic issues.
  •  Scrutiny and comment on planning applications within the parish, submitted to the local planning authority, Somerset Council.
  •  Liaison with local authorities on the maintenance, repair and improvement of highways, drainage, public rights of way, public transport, trees and waste issues.
  •  Support, by way of small grants, to local organisations who provide a service for the benefit of the community.
  •  Investigation and resolution of local problems and complaints received from the community.
  • View of the field on a misty morning

As the site develops we hope it will become the local access point for Selwood related matters and Local Authority services.
