Introduction to the Town Council
Evesham Town Council is at the first tier of local government providing services for the people of Evesham. The Town Council is a statutory consultee regarding planning and reports its recommendations to Wychavon District Council who are the planning authority. The Council also provides financial support for various festivals in Evesham as well as other projects such as the Town Plan. The Town Council distributes grants to various local organisations; application forms are available on request.
The Council is made up of 24 elected councillors representing the five wards of Avon, Bengeworth, Great Hampton, Little Hampton, Evesham South & Twyford and a small team of officers led by the Town Clerk.
The Town Council is responsible for three allotment sites, three cemeteries, All Saints Churchyard and the closed Churchyard at St Peters (Bengeworth) and Hampton Churchyard, Christmas lights, the Charter Market, Evesham Town Hall (first floor), Bonfire/Firework event, the floral planters and troughs around Evesham and the Almonry Museum and Tourist Information Centre.
The Town Mayor, a position that has existed in the town since it was awarded its Charter in 1604, chairs council meetings. All Council and committee meetings are held at the Town Hall and are open to the public to attend.
