One of the Town Council's important duties is to act as a sounding board for local opinion and so we are consulted on a number of matters not least of all planning. The council also helps to arrange for public consultation meetings for larger projects such as the proposed link road, major planning applications and local government reorganisation. Councillors represent wards in the town and local people should know who their councillors are and if they have any issues they can ask their ward councillor to approach the appropriate agency to solve their problems such as housing, state of the streets and pavements and other issues in the town.

The town council has to set a budget with which to pay for the services it provides and its support for local agencies, charities and groups who enhance the lives of Kirtonians. The Council's budget, or precept, forms part of every household's Council Tax, albeit just a small part. Councillors try to keep the burden of taxation as low as possible and to spend wisely because we realise we are spending your money and you expect good value.

The Town Clerk, Assistant Clerk and members of the Town Council are here to serve you, so if you have any issues or ideas on how to improve the town get in touch with one of us and even if your suggestion or comment is rightly the responsibility of another authority we will ensure your comment is passed on.
