Working Groups

Witham Town Council operates a significant number of Working Groups, otherwise known as Advisory Committees which are responsible for performing research and completing tasks, but do not have decision making powers.

These groups make recommendations to their respective committees or the full Council for ratification and tackle a wide range of issues across the town. Current working groups include:

  • Community Safety
  • Youth
  • Maltings Lane & S106 Matters
  • World War I Centenary Commemorations
  • Improving Healthcare Facilities
  • Open Spaces Steering Group
  • River Walk & Nature Reserves Management
  • Revenue & Strategy

Please refer to the individual drop down menus from the main directory for more information on the remit of a working group and details of membership. Some working groups are open to public membership. If you are interested in joining a Council working group in an advisory capacity then please email
