Weston-super-Mare Town Council
Weston-super-Mare has grown from a fishing village of 180 inhabitants in 1810 to a major holiday resort of 80,000 people today.
Weston super Mare Town Council is the only democratically elected body exclusively representing the civil “parish” and people of Weston-super-Mare, including Worle and Uphill. Re-founded 2000 to carry out the civic role of the former borough abolished in 1974 which left Weston without its own Council, unlike any of the other 39 parishes in North Somerset.
There are 31 councillors elected every 4 years who take no allowances, as well as a small number of employed staff to implement their decisions. The Council is entirely independent of North Somerset Council and raises its own budget to spend on services and facilities. The Council is responsible to the people it represents, the local community.
Attending a council meeting is the best way to find out what we do. Please enjoy finding out more about the council by having a look round our website and social media channels.

A video which introduces Weston Museum:
Weston-super-Mare Town Council owns the museum and is responsible for the day to day running and funding, North Somerset Council owns the museum’s collection of artefacts which are then stored, managed and cared for by the South West Heritage Trust.
