Swillington Parish Council came into being at the first opportunity after the enactment of the Local Government Act 1894. Swillington was once a coal mining village, though the pits were worked out and closed, some years before the industry itself was all but destroyed. Where Primrose Hill Pit once stood is now a housing estate with street names taken from the colliery's name, Primrose Hill Drive, Primrose Hill Green and many others.
At its meeting in November 2018 it was resolved to change the name from Swillington Parish Council to Swillington Village Council.
The village council meets on the first Tuesday of each month with exception of August, when there is no meeting. It meets in the Church Lane, Village Hall located at the side of St Mary's Primary School. Meetings begin at 7.30PM and everyone is welcome.
Swillington Village Council has nine Councillors.
