Welcome to Hereford City Council

Whilst Hereford City Council does not have the responsibility for delivering large and complex services like schools, hospitals and highways to its residents, it plays an important role in influencing others and acting as the voice of the people who live here.

The Council is made up of 18 Councillors who represent 16 wards of the City.  Besides ‘Full Council’ there are four committees: Finance and Policy, Community Development, Governance and Procedures and Planning and Highways; it’s committees are made up of different Members of the Council, each committee having its own roles and responsibilities.
