About Us

Welcome to Waldridge Parish Council.

Our Parish Council has been around for many years, bringing old and new together, dating back to 1894 when Parish Councils were first created by statute. We are situated south west of Chester-le-Street.



Our aim is to develop and sustain a sense of community within the Parish of Waldridge by addressing environmental, economic and social issues and deliving quality services to our parishioners, that is why we are currently applying for Quality status, this mean the Parish Council will:



· be representative of the whole community

· communicate regularly with its residents

· be properly managed and responsible

We have 1740 dwellings in our Parish with over 3500 residents.



Parish and town councils in England are the first-tier of local government. They deliver a vast range of services at a community level and are not political in any way.



Parish Councils can respond to the needs of the community. We are the first-tier of local government, closest to the people – delivering the services or representation it most needs.
