Witney Town Council was established in 1974 and is the ‘parish’ council for the town. There are six electoral wards within the town boundary. We have 17 elected town
councillors who form the democratically elected body that represents the people of the town. Councillors are usually elected for a term of four years, except where a by-election is held. Town Councillors are unpaid public servants.
Our Councillors regularly meet in full council and at
committee and sub committee meetings. These evening meetings are held in the Council Chamber at the Town Hall and are open to the public and the press.
Witney Town Council is the third tier of Local
Government for Witney. We work alongside
West Oxfordshire District Council and Oxfordshire County Council who provide other services over a larger area, such as roads, planning, waste collection and social services.
