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 – 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 held on the first Tuesday of the Month (unless there is a significant public event which would warrant a change of date). Meetings are held in Globe House, Library meeting room 4, 1st floor (lift available), accessed off Seggs Lane, at 7pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend all our meetings.
