The Council

The Town Council consists of 19 councillors who represent 7 wards. Each year the council elects from their number a Town Mayor. The Council conducts its business through four programme committees:

  • Planning
  • Public Services
  • Amenities and Tourism
  • Finance and General Purposes

The Planning Committee meets every third week. Public Services, Amenities & Tourism and Finance and General Purposes meet six times a year, with Council meeting at least eight times a year.

The Council fulfills a positive role at the heart of the Community. It is represented by individual members, who are elected annually on a significant number of outside groups and organisations.
