The job of the Town Council is to look after the interests of the whole community of Westerham.  This is fulfilled by the Councillors individually and collectively, assisted by the Town Clerk, Deputy Clerk, Assistant Clerk and the Responsible Finance Officer.

The Annual Report aims to outline and review the key events the Council has been involved with during the year. It is presented to members of the public in April at the Annual Town Meeting.
