WHAT WE DO
Saxmundham Town Council is responsible for the day to day management of the Town and its finances. It is responsible for amenities such as the skate park, play parks, the Market and items such as the war memorial. It supports local groups and charities with grants and other assistance and is consulted about planning applications although East Suffolk District Council make the final decision.
The Council is made up of 11 Councillors who are elected every 4 years. The next election is scheduled for 2021. However, if a vacancy occurs then the Council can co-opt a person to serve unless 10 members of the electorate petition for an election.
The Town Council meets every month, except August, on the second Monday of the month in the Market Hall. The Councillors also serve on committees which meet at various times to discuss specific items such as the finances or planning. All members of the public are welcome to attend the meeting.
