Welcome to Wrington Parish Council
We hope you find our website interesting and helpful. If not then please let us know how you think it could be improved. Suggestions are always welcome.
The parish includes the villages of Wrington and Redhill, together with a large area of countryside and a number of widely dispersed rural households. Significantly, Bristol Airport lies within the parish and while obviously being convenient for some residents it has a direct impact on others.
More general information about Wrington and Redhill is available on the Wrington Village website (link below), with our intention to provide Council-related information here.
