Helping to make Shevington a better place to live

Who We Are

The Parish Council looks after many pathways, green spaces, shared areas and leisure facilities in the District. It also organises events and helps residents to find out more about the area.

As one of only two Parish Councils in Wigan, we are proud to represent our community.

What is a Parish Council?

Shevington Parish Council is funded by a precept from residents’ council tax. It can also raise funds by applying to relevant organisations.
Parish councils are made up of elected volunteer councillors, co-opted volunteers and a clerk.
Parish councillors make many decisions which affect the local community.
Some of the most common areas that we get involved with are:

• planning matters (councillors are statutory consultees)

• car park maintenance

• crime prevention

• managing open spaces

• campaigning for and delivering better services

• liaising with local groups and committees

• funding local projects

• liaising with wider organisations on residents’ behalf.

Shevington Parish Council meets twice a month – on the first and last Wednesdays – at the sports centre on Vicarage Lane from 7pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend to raise issues although some parts of the meetings are confidential.

An inclusive parish

As a community, we have been recognised as “Age-Friendly”.

Community groups need your support to do their our work — contact us to learn how you can volunteer or donate.
