Wroughton Parish is one of the largest in Wiltshire and has a wide diversity of both village facilities, farming and protected countryside. It contains a conservation area which includes many old buildings which require protection from inappropriate development.  The parish will be undergoing major change in the coming years with the development at Wichelstowe north of the M4, with another 4,500 homes being built.

The Council aims to protect and enhance the current village of Wroughton and the surrounding parish and to make policies that will retain the parish and its special character for future generations.

In addition to the Full Council, the Parish Council operates through its four committees: Planning, Leisure & Amenities, Environment & Road Safety, and Finance & General Purposes.  Each Committee has its own terms own Terms of Reference and Delegated Powers.  Click here for further information and documents relating to specific committees.
