About Us

Upton upon Severn is a small town and civil parish in the Malvern Hills district of Worcestershire. It is one of only two towns to have a river frontage onto the River Severn and accordingly the river has played a large part in the town’s history.

The parish includes the rural areas of Longdon Heath and the Hook and in total has population of approximately 3000 people.

Parish and Town Councils were established by the Local Government Act of 1894. However it is the Local Government Act 1972 that guides the Council’s work and sets out the Powers and Duties of Town and Parish Councils. Parish and Town Councils comprise the first tier of Local Government making decisions on behalf of their residents. In Worcestershire there are three tiers of local government with the second tier council locally being Malvern Hills District Council and the third tier council Worcestershire County Council.

Meetings are held on Tuesdays at 7.30pm in the Memorial Hall, Old Street, Upton upon Severn and the Town Council's office is on the first floor. Meetings usually take place in the Council Chamber upstairs but are also held in the main hall if an attendee has difficulty getting up the stairs. 

The towns shopping facilities cater for everyday needs as well as for the frequent tourists who visit the region. There are four churches, a primary school and many hotels, restaurants and public houses to suit all tastes and budgets. The High School is situated a short distance away in the neighbouring parish of Hanley Castle.
