Trowell Parish Council serves a village of approximately three thousand residents. It is situated on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border and lies within the Borough of Broxtowe in the County of Nottinghamshire in England.
In 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain, our village was selected, from all the villages in Britain, as the ‘Festival Village’. Fifty- eight years later we won the Nottinghamshire heat of the Calor ‘Village of the Year’ competition.
Between those two significant dates we have not stood still! The village has expanded in terms of houses. We have a parish hall and a church hall, where residents can enjoy a variety of activities.
We have moved forward as a council, our motto is “Independence and Self Help”. We aim to serve all of our residents to the best of our ability, to communicate with them, to listen to them, and to act in their best interests.
Residents are encouraged to attend ‘public participation’, which is held during every full council meeting. We also arrange special meetings whenever they are required.
We have produced a parish plan and a parish design statement; we deliver our regular newsletter to every resident, and of course have this new and improved web site which we hope you enjoy! Ours is a forward thinking active council, putting Trowell first!
