Roos Parish Council covers the settlements of Roos, Tunstall, Hilston, and Owstwick.


The Council conforms with all nationally determined legal requirements, codes of practice, policies and procedures.


The Coronvirus Act 2020

This legislation strongly advises against holding any 'face to face' meetings until at least May 2021.

In the light of this, Roos Parish Council has reluctantly taken the decision to suspend its monthly meetings until further notice.


The pandemic is fast moving and a dedicated Covid 19 Section has been created on our Home Page.
