Town Council Meetings
On this page you will find information, agendas and minutes of Full Council and Committee meetings. You will find them in date order with any relevant documents linked to them. Please click on the pdf icon to view. (you will need to have downloaded Adobe Reader to be able to see the documents) The various responsibilities of the Council are divided into three areas and Committees are used to run these functions:
Planning Committee - where the opinion of the Highworth Town Council (HTC) on Planning Applications relating to the town is decided. Recommendations are then given to the Planning Authority which is Swindon Borough Council.
Leisure Committee - responsibility for the Sports fields, allotments and the Cemetery as well as other open spaces and buildings maintained and cared for by the Town Council.
General Purpose & Finance Committee - this area includes the Market (although a Manager is contracted to run it), the day to day running of the Offices, the Financial Planning/Budgeting and Controls for the Town.
These areas each have a committee to discuss relevant topics/problems/plans. Their findings are then put before the Full Council Meetings where they are ratified. A schedule of future meeting dates is provided here 2017-2018 . The People of Highworth are welcome to attend any of the meetings held - there is a time for Public questions at the beginning of each Full Council Meeting, and for items on the Agendas of the Committee Meetings.
Minutes of Meetings before this date are available on request - just ask through the contact form or pop into the office.
