Town Council Elections

Elections for the Town Council will also take place on 7 May this year, at the same time as the Borough and General Election. 
From the Town Clerk: 'Some people may think their opinions don't count or that local action won't make any difference, but that's not true and meetings such as the Annual Town Assembly aim to set the record straight.  The reality is that if you vote - you decide what gets done.  It's an important way of having your say on the issues you care about and in choosing who will take decisions on your behalf.  From the right to make representations on planning applications, to the state of footpaths and street lighting, parish and town councils have a wide range of ever increasing responsibilities and duties.  They make decisions which affect your every day life.'

'Soon you will be asked to vote for someone to represent your views and surveys tell us that although many people want a say in how their area is run, they don't always know who their councillors are.  The message is simple - come along, get involved and find out more.  It doesn't matter if you don't want to become a local councillor yourself, although you might know someone who does.  By just voting and getting involved you will be able to ensure a better local service.'
