Brigg Town Council

Brigg Town Council

The Parish of Brigg is served by its own Town Council, which was established during the 1974 re-organisation of Local Government. The Town Council consists of 19 members, and elections are held every four years in May, to coincide with the District Council elections for North Lincolnshire Council. Brigg Town Councillors serve in an entirely voluntary capacity and, although mileage allowances can be claimed by members who represent the Town Council out of the Town, no other allowances are paid other than the Town Mayor’s Allowance.

The Chairman of the Town Council is also the Town Mayor, and he/she is elected by members of the Town Council at the Council Annual Meeting held each year in May.

The Town Council is extremely active in response to all issues relating to Brigg, and its future as a thriving town and community. Full Council Meetings are usually held on the fourth Monday of every month, at 7.30pm in the ballroom of the Angel Suite  The council also has a number of standing committees that meet at other times during the month.(see Schedule of Meeting dates).

For all meetings - the Agenda of Business to be Transacted is posted on the Town Council Notice board, located at the rear of The Angel Suite, during the week prior to the meeting.

The Town Council Office is in the basement of the Angel Suite, and is open to the Public on Monday and Thursday mornings between 9.30am-12 noon (access via the Angel Courtyard). Telephone Number 01652 659402.  e.mail: enquiries@briggmarkettown.co.uk

The Town Clerk and members of the Town Council are always willing to assist parishioners if it is within the power of the Town Council to do so. If, for any reason, they cannot help, they will often be able to re-direct you to the relevant organisation that can. Please do not hesitate to make use of your elected representatives.

The Annual Town Public Meeting for Parishioners is held between 1st March - 1st June. This meeting is chaired by the Town Mayor, and provides the opportunity for parishioners to raise issues, and gain clarification on matters relating to the Town.
