Precept payers

Residents with the town of Malvern and the parishes of Colwall, Guarlford, Malvern Wells, Mathon and West Malvern pay a contribution towards the Malvern Hills Trust as part of their annual Council Tax bill.

Your contribution helps fund essential work to protect and conserve the stunning Malvern Hills and Commons and keep them open for your enjoyment.


Here's a snapshot of our work over the last year:

  • Resurfaced the Earnslaw Easier Access Trail to improve access for the less able and those with pushchairs
  • Made improvements along the footpath above Jubilee Drive on Perseverance Hill.
  • Restored three hectares of open habitats to conserve the open hilltops which are so characteristic of the Malverns, and the Sites of Special Scientific Interest.
  • Over 200 people came along to our events in 2016 which included fungi forays, reptile rambles and geological journeys.  Our 2017 events programme is now available
  • Run over 40 volunteer days with tasks including orchard pruning, pond restoration and maintaining important archaeological features including British Camp.

Residents' parking passes

Residents within the town of Malvern and the parishes of Colwall, Guarlford, Malvern Wells, Mathon and West Malvern who pay the levy to the Trust on their Council Tax bill, are entitled to an annual Concessionary Parking Pass at £5.00 each.  This pass is valid from 1st April to 31st March.

Residents' (concessionary) Passes are available from our office at Manor House, or from the Malvern Tourist Office on Church Street.

Please bring with you a form of identification such as driving licence, council tax bill, or other bill (dated within the last three months), along with your car registration number.  Your registration number will be written on your pass and is not transferable between vehicles.

If you are changing your vehicle, please bring in your old parking pass and we will issue you with a new one for no charge.
