Annual Town Meeting

The Annual Town Meeting is an open meeting for all residents of Witham.    This year's meeting was held at the Royal British Legion Hall in Newland Street on 13th March.  At this year's meeting, we are gave the floor to the Witham Community to present what they think are Witham's most important issues and their vision for Witham.

Whilst it is organised by the Town Council, the Annual Town Meeting is not a council meeting. The law says the meeting must be held between 1st March and 1st June and we usually hold ours in April. 

 

The meeting is chaired by the Mayor of Witham and includes reports from each of the Council's Committees, but Councillors have no more standing than other electors of Witham.  The meeting is an open forum giving residents an opportunity to raise issues they feel are important to the town. This could be:

  • Suggesting ideas for the Town Council to investigate

  • Raising concerns about planned activities in the town

  • Asking questions to the Town Council

  • Raising general issues affecting the town

 

Any registered elector for Witham has the right to speak at the meeting.
