The parish council is the first tier of local government and exists to represent the interests of the parish. There are fifteen seats on Wootton Parish Council and councillors are elected when determined by central government. The position is purely voluntary and attracts no payment.

The Annual Meeting is held in May and the Parish Meeting is held between 1st March and 1st June each year.
Full council and committee meetings are held in the Memorial Hall, Bedford Road, on the second and last Wednesdays of each month - please refer to the list of meetings for fuller details. All meetings are open to the public and include an 'Open Forum' where Wootton residents can address the council on issues relating to the village. There are three committees (Finance & General Purposes, Leisure & Amenities and Planning & Environment), two steering groups (Neighbourhood Planning and Roads & Pavements Safety) and three working groups (Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), Fun Fest and Wootton Play Equipment). A list of all Meetings and Minutes can be found on this website and on the parish noticeboards.
The Parish Council employs a Clerk (Sue Playford) who implements decisions made by the council and provides independent, objective and professional advice, information and administrative support to the council. The Clerk is the main contact for the parish.
