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.
