What we do

As the level of local government closest to those who live and work in the town and its surrounding areas, the Town Council strives to improve the quality of life in the area; it provides important services within the community and represents the views of local people in all matters which affect Westerham.

 

Its 13 Councillors work through 5 committees to carry out its responsibilities: the Allotments, Playing Fields and Open Spaces Committee, the Finance and General Purposes Committee, the Highways and Lighting Committee, the Planning and Development Committee and the Youth and Community Committee.

Central to everything it does is communication and engagement with the community, ranging from detailed consultations on specific issues, to a wide ranging survey on which was based the current 4 year strategy. It is constantly seeking new ways to engage with its residents and businesses.

In so doing it works closely with local organisations: the Westerham Town Partnership, the Westerham Society, our local primary school, Rotary Club, as well as with the District, and County Council and with our MP.
