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 Conservatives.[1] It has adopted the Leader and Cabinet constitutional model[2] The current leader, since May 2013, is Cllr Tony Johnson, of the Conservative party,[3] who has appointed a cabinet of 9 other councillors, each with a separate portfolio of Council activity, for which they take political responsibility.

The Council administers the County from a number of scattered office locations, but its primary address is the hub of its managerial and democratic activity at Brockington, 35 Hafod Road, Hereford HR1 1SH.[4]
