About Chippenham Town Council

We have 24 Councillors representing eight wards who are elected every four years. They set the budget, decide the strategy and actions and how money is spent. Each May a mayor and deputy mayor is elected. The mayor is the town’s first citizen and its ambassador at public, civic and ceremonial events.

Council meetings are held at the Town Hall and are open to you to come along. We have a 30 minute open session at the beginning of our meetings when you can raise issues and ask questions.
