Wyre Forest (district)

"For the woodland in Shropshire and Worcestershire, see Wyre Forest - for the district in Lancashire, see Wyre"

Wyre Forest is a local government district in Worcestershire, England, covering the towns of Kidderminster, Stourport-on-Severn and Bewdley. Its council is based in Stourport-on-Severn.

The district was formed under the Local Government Act 1972, on 1 April 1974, as a merger of Bewdley and Kidderminster municipal boroughs, Stourport-on-Severn Urban District Council and Kidderminster Rural District Council.

The Wyre Forest parliamentary constituency, which covers most of the district, is represented by the Independent Kidderminster Hospital and Health Concern MP Dr Richard Taylor. His party was the dominant party, but in the May 2008 local election, the Conservative Party took control of the council.
