The official Home Page of the Bishop's
Castle Town Council
Bishop’s Castle residents and anyone regularly using its facilities for work or leisure are being invited to bring forward their ideas for improving all aspects of life in the town.
The Town Council is beginning a community plan process with an invitation delivered to every household and to many local businesses and organisations. We need as many people as possible, of all ages and interests, to tell us what concerns they have for the future, what they value about the town now and their ideas for improvements or change.
Whilst the community led plan cannot contradict county planning strategy, it will give the town a chance to record its preferred vision of its future. Bishop’s Castle Town Council also wants the process to strengthen the community by opening communications and allowing local people to work together to create their own action plan.

The council consists of 12 councillors,
all elected every 4 years. The mayor is a councillor elected annually
by the members of the council. The mayors role is to steer
the council, chair its meetings and wear the regalia of the office
on formal occasions. The council meets every four weeks in the
council chamber of the Town Hall (pictured below).
