ABOUT US

 

Royal Leamington Spa Town Council was established in April 2002 following a petition to the Secretary of State which was signed by over 4,000 residents indicating their wish to see local authority status returned to the Town.  Unlike the other Towns in Warwick District, Leamington Spa was unique in not having its own elected body. The Council is based at Offices in the Town Hall at the Parade and meets as a full Council every second month.  All meetings of the Council and its Committees are open to the public and public participation at meetings is welcome.

 

As with all Parish authorities, the Town Council has limited statutory responsibilities. However it is an important representative voice for the people of Leamington Spa and works in collaboration with other local authorities to secure the best outcome possible across a range of services. A summary of the role of the Town Council and the services it provides can be found in the presentation slides available on this page. 

 

The Council also recognises the contribution made to life through the many community and voluntary organisations based in the Town and actively engages with, and supports, these bodies through the work of the Cultural and Community Committee. It maintains a Community Grant Fund which is allocated periodically throughout the year. You can find more details about this fund on the Community Section of the website.

 

Responsibility for most services in the Town lies with the relevant authorities – Warwickshire County Council  www.warwickshire.gov.uk

or Warwick District Council www.warwickdc.gov.uk 

 

The main services provided by the Town Council are as follows:-

 

  •  Civic events promoted by the Town Mayor
