Herefordshire Council is the local government authority for the county of Herefordshire in England. It is a unitary authority, combining the powers of a non-metropolitan county and district.

It is a relatively new council, formed on 1 April 1998 following the split of Hereford and Worcester back into two separate counties.

It is currently run by the Conservatives.[1] It has adopted the Leader and Cabinet constitutional model.[2]

The Council administers the County from a number of scattered office locations, but its primary address and the home to its managerial and operational activity is Plough Lane, Hereford, HR4 0LE.[3]
