The work our council does is both exciting and rewarding.  Among the on-going projects are:

  • Repairs to Town Hall Exterior
  • Development of a new car park
  • Electric Vehicle Charge Point introduction
  • De-carbonisation of Council buildings as part of our climate change initiative
  • Development of youth service provision
  • Allotments management and improvement
  • Footpath and footway surveys and improvement
  • Re-build of Old Town Toilets
  • OK Path lighting
  • Establishment of an expanded town market
  • Holding events including Christmas Under The Edge, Remembrance Sunday Parade
  • Improve play areas and public open spaces

An integral part of this work is the job Town Councillors do: engaging with local people, groups, and businesses to find out their needs; making decisions on the services and projects the council should take forward; and getting involved to ensure services are meeting the community’s needs.

We are now asking people who want to improve the quality of life for their fellow residents to help the Town Council to make that change and apply for being a Town Councillor.
