What is a Town Council?

A Town Council is a statutory body and is the most local level of government. It has an important role in promoting the town, representing its interests and supporting the work of different groups in the community.

What does the Town Council do for me?

Quedgeley Town Council, the first tier of local government, consisting of a group of 16 elected volunteers and 11 members of staff who together represent the interests of the community. Its core values represent unity, contentment and success. Working to a committee structure enables the council to achieve a difference, benefitting from local knowledge of how Quedgeley really works. Working with the community for the community, the town council is your one stop shop for local concerns and advice.
