Due to insufficient candidates standing at the local election in May Oswestry Rural Parish Council has one vacancy in the Rhydycroesau with Llanforda Ward that must be filled by co-option.

Due to the recent death of Cllr. Tony Milner, we also have a vacancy in the Maesbury with Aston Ward that must be filled by co-option.

Further details can be found on our Become a Councillor page.


We would like to hear from you about how you would like us to spend money in the parish. We have unspent Neighbourhood Funds and you are invited to put forward your ideas.  For example, would you like to see flower displays at the entrance to your village or would you like more litter bins?  Please write to the Clerk with your ideas.
