The Town Council is made up of 12 Councillors. Each year, in May, one of the councillors is elected as Chairman of the Council, also known as Town Mayor. The Council is served by a Town Clerk who carries out the day-to-day management of the Council and implements its decisions ensuring that all legal requirements are complied with by the Council.
The Town Council usually meet on the first Tuesday of every month at 18:00 in the council offices at 50 High Street. There is a 15 minute public forum when residents can ask questions or bring their observations to the Council.
As a Town Council we have a responsibility to our residents and visitors alike, but as it is our residents who pay the Council Tax, it is there the emphasis lies.
Wainfleet All Saints Town Council has relatively few responsibilities as far as public property is concerned, but the council takes its responsibilities seriously and tries to do what’s best for everyone, within the resources available to the Council.
