Wyre Forest District Council came into being in 1974 as a result of the reorganisation of Local Government and is one of six districts in Worcestershire. Wyre Forest is a mix of urban rural and market town communities covering 195 square kilometres.
The three main towns of Kidderminster, Bewdley and Stourport-on-Severn and several surrounding villages including Arley, Rock, Chaddesley Corbett and Wolverley make up the district.
Kidderminster, the largest town in the district, is approximately 20 miles from Birmingham and Worcester and has good road and rail links to most major towns. The area's semi rural, yet central location makes the whole district an attractive location in which to both live and work.
We also work in partnership with a number of voluntary organisations and other local authorities such as County, District and Parish Councils.
