For electoral purposes Formby Parish Council presently comprises two Wards, Harington that returns eight Parish Councillors and Ravenmeols that returns a further seven. The 15 elected Parish Councillors work on a voluntary basis to represent the views and interests of their constituents in Formby. The Parish Council itself is based in the last civic building in the Village in Duke Street, that also houses Formby Library (that is the second most highly used library in Sefton) and remains a vital community resource.
Formby Parish Council Meetings are usually held at 7.00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month and are open to members of the public (during the early part of the meeting the Standing Orders are suspended to give people the opportunity to ask questions and raise issues for the Council's attention). Once the meeting formally recommences the Councillors discuss a number of items on that particular meetings agenda.
The Council also employs a Parish Clerk, Claire Jenkins who can be contacted on the office number or via the Contact page on this website. Enquiries by post should be sent to:
