Community Governance Review (CGR) for Wolverley and Cookley

On Wednesday 18 April 2018, Wolverley and Cookley Parish Council presented a petition to the district council, bearing 301 signatures, requesting that we undertake a Community Governance Review (CGR)

The petition requests the council to undertake a CGR with a view to dissolving the current Parish Council and forming a new Parish Council for Cookley and a new Parish Council for Wolverley.

The introductory stage of the CGR included consultation with stakeholders. Consultation closed Friday 13 July 2018.  

Local Advisory Poll

Anyone who is registered to vote and lives in the parish was able to vote in the Local Advisory Poll. This took place on Thursday 12 July between 8am and 8pm.  Voters were asked “Should the villages of Wolverley and Cookley each have their own Parish Council?”


This timetable assumes that the initial submission and advisory poll support the split of Wolverley and Cookley Parish and the creation of two separate parish councils.
