Weston super Mare Town Council is the only democratically elected body exclusively representing the civil "parish" and people of Weston-super-Mare, including Worle and Uphill. There are 31 councillors elected every 4 years who take no allowances, as well as a small number of employed staff to implement their decisions. The Council is entirely independent of North Somerset Council and raises its own budget to spend on services and facilities that the people of Weston want.

We provide many services to the town including the Blakehay Theatre, Weston Museum, the Water Park, 2 Skate Parks, 6 Public Toilets, 19 Play Areas, bus shelters, dog bins etc. We also lobby other public authorities on things which affect the town.
Re-founded 2000 to carry out the civic role of the former borough abolished in 1974 which left Weston without its own Council, unlike any of the other 39 parishes in North Somerset.

Looking after you during the Coronavirus pandemic

Weston-super-Mare Town Council is taking the Coronavirus pandemic seriously.

We will suspend all committee and working parties until further notice. Day to day business will continue, as usual, however, we will not be making any policy changes at this time. The Town Clerk will take urgent decisions in conjunction with senior councillors. Officers will communicate with councillors keeping them informed through weekly communications.

The current Mayor, Councillor Mark Canniford will stay in position as Mayor for the next twelve months. The Mayor will attend events on a case by case basis. This includes the postponement of the Mayor’s Ball from 28th March to later in the year.

Councillors agreed where possible they will look after their wards with extra awareness of the vulnerable.

Officers met this morning to discuss council facilities and it was decided that all events at the Blakehay Theatre and at Weston Museum are to be postponed.  Water Adventure Play Park and out play areas and parks are closed.

The Visitor Information Centre will be open as soon as it can for the summer season, however, until then staff will be available by phone.

We have closed the Blakehay Theatre and Weston Museum.

We will keep taking care of our parks and play areas for you to enjoy. You can expect to see flowers, even though we might not enter the ‘Weston in Bloom’ competition this year, we will make sure our green spaces are beautiful places to enjoy.

We will create a programme of entertainment and education from our Museum and the Blakehay Theatre which you will be able to access online. Which will include films, live streaming and written content. Everything from storytelling for children, education films, and history classes for our area. We are also creating a beautiful local nature Instagram page for you to enjoy.

We have plenty to do and business will continue as normal as much as possible, while some of our staff members will be working from home.

Our offices remain open and you can contact us on 01934 632567 or admin@wsm-tc.gov.uk.
