The Role of The Town Council

Town Councillors discuss local issues, and make locally focused policies and decisions. Meetings are held at the Guildhall, Mill Street, Ludlow and are open to members of the public, who can address Councillors in the public session at the beginning of the meeting.

The varied role of a Town Council means its work intertwines with the fabric of the town. To work well a Town Council needs to listen to the concerns of residents. Ludlow Town Councillors and staff work in partnership with a number of Community Groups - all working for the enhancement and benefit of Ludlow.

The Council is led by the Town Mayor who together with the Deputy Mayor is elected at the Annual General Meeting in May each year. During their term of office the Mayor is the official representative of the town and attends many civic and community events across the county and further afield in this capacity.

The work of Ludlow Town Council is funded mainly through the precept which is raised each year on our behalf by Shropshire Council from Council Tax payers in the parish of Ludlow. The Town Council also raises revenue each year from the Market, Street Trading Pitches, Cemetery, Linney car Park, Castle Street Toilets and Ludlow Museum at the Buttercross.

The budget and precept for the following financial year (1st April to 31st March) is set each year by Council at a meeting in January/February.  This budget will set out the intended income and expenditure for the financial year including day to day running costs of the Council offices and current services, as well as budgets for any new projects during the year.

All Council and Committee meetings are open to the public and include a public open session item during which anyone can speak to the Council on any subject relating to the Council or the Town.
