Annual Town Meeting

The Annual Town Meeting is an open meeting for all residents of Witham.    This year's meeting will be held at the Royal British Legion Hall in Newland Street on Tuesday 19th April at 7pm.

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 has not been held since 2019 due to Government restrictions on public gatherings during the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

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.

Groups and organisations from within the town are welcome to have a stall at the meeting to promote themselves, as well as to speak at the meeting to give feedback on their activities and plans.
