Alcester Town Council Building

Alcester has the largest number of inhabitants of any parish or Town Council outside Stratford upon Avon, and sits within the Stratford on Avon District of Warwickshire.

The Town Council has 16 Councillors and every year elects a Mayor and Deputy Mayor, who act as the Chairman and Deputy. The Council operates with monthly Full Council meetings and a Planning Committee.  In addition, there is a Finance and General Purposes Committee, which comprises the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and 3 other members elected from the Town Council.

The Town Council has two noticeboards in the town; one in Market Place (on the walkway from Waitrose car park to the High Street) and one in the High Street outside SpecSavers. Agendas for meetings are put up on the noticeboards three clear days before each meeting and are also available online on our website. Members of the public are welcome to attend all our meetings.
