Catshill and North Marlbrook Parish Council was established in 1994, making it one of the newer Parish Councils in the Bromsgrove District. It comprises 13 Councillors who are elected to represent three wards within the Parish; Woodrow Ward (3 councillors), Barley Meadow Ward (8 councillors) and Lower Marlbrook Ward (2 councillors). Local Councils are an essential part of local democracy acting on behalf of the wide variety of communities they represent by:
- Giving views, on behalf of the community, on planning applications and other proposals that affect their area
- Undertaking projects and schemes that benefit local residents
- Working in partnership with other bodies to achieve benefits for the parish
- Alerting relevant authorities to problems that arise or work needing to be done.
