About The Town Council

What does Bungay Town Council Do?

  • Gives views, on behalf of the community, on planning applications and other proposals that affect the parish
  • Undertakes projects and schemes that benefit local residents
  • Works in partnership with other bodies to achieve benefits for the Town
  • Alerts relevant authorities to problems that arise or work that needs to be undertaken
  • Helps the other tiers of local government keep in touch with their local communities
  • Manages and provides events, assets and services

Currently Bungay Town Council has 15 elected Members (also called Councillors) all of whom are elected on a 4 year cycle. If a vacancy occurs between the fixed election dates, it is filled either by a by-election if the required number of electors request one, or co-option, if this is not the case. In both cases the new Member will serve for the balance of the 4 year term.
