Welcome to Wivenhoe Town Council

Wivenhoe Town CouncilWe hope that this website will prove to be both interesting and helpful for you. From here, you should be able research all matters in relation to the Town Council. We have tried to concentrate our content on information that relates only to the Town Council. Consequently you can be informed on;

  • Dates and Minutes of meetings
  • Planning Applications
  • Councillors contact details
  • Extent of services provided
  • Civic and Social events.
The roles and responsibilities of the Council are important to us and we do our best to make sure that you are pleased with what we do. Quite a few of the services affecting the town are provided by either Colchester Borough Council or Essex County Council. We have therefore provided links that will enable you to enquire further about these. Likewise, the abundance of Societies, Clubs and Voluntary organisations that make Wivenhoe such a flourishing community can also be accessed through this link - http://www.wivencyclopedia.org/.

Wivenhoe Town Councillors are all non salaried volunteers. They are supported by a small team of administrators and enjoy the benefits of an Estates ground team together with staff who help to maintain and keep the William Loveless Hall. All are dedicated to providing and maintaining the best local public services within their attainment. Equally, they are available for you to contact so that you can question and discuss on any matter that affects you as a resident of the Town.
