Alcester Town Council has the most inhabitants of any parish or Town Council outside Stratford, in the Stratford District of Warwickshire. The Council has 16 Councillors and every year elects a Mayor and Deputy Mayor, who act as the Chairman and Deputy. The Council operates not only with monthly Council meetings, but also with three project based Committees – Strategic Planning, Community care and Community Facilities. This year the Council has added a Communications Committee to assist in managing communication between the Council, its Committees and the residents. The Council also have an executive Presidium, which is made up from the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and the Chairmen from the other committees.
The Town Council has two noticeboards in the town; one on Market Way (the footpath from the Bulls Head Yard car park to the High Street) and one on the High Street outside the Post Office. Agendas for meetings appear on the noticeboards by the Thursday before each meeting but are also available online.
Full Council meetings are the first Tuesday of the Month (unless there is a significant public event which would warrent a change of date). As of August 2016, these meetings will be held back in Globe House, Library meeting room 4, 1st floor, accessed off Seggs Lane, at 7pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend all our meetings.
Community Care Committee will be the second Tuesday in the month, at 7pm, also at Globe House, but in the Council Board room, 1st floor, accessed via Seggs Lane.
Community Facilities Committee will be the third Tuesday in the month also at the Council Board Room, Globe House, Seggs Lane at 7pm,
Strategic Planning Committee meetings will be every other Monday in the Council board room in Globe House at 7pm (unless an alternative location is required, this will be specified on the agenda).
The Council produces a newsletter four times a year; Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. The Council is happy to include any suitable community items, subject to space being available and content with the Council, providing the Town Clerk receives the articles a month prior to publication.
