Local Government in Wiltshire operates in a two tier system; with Wiltshire Council as the Unitary Authority (upper tier) and Bradford on Avon Town Council (lower tier).
Bradford on Avon Town Council is a progressive town council with aspirations to work for the whole community.
We hold the general Power of Competence which enables us to take on an enhanced role and the Town Council promotes the best interests of the town for the local community.
The Annual Council meeting selects a Mayor and Deputy Mayor for each year.
Wiltshire Council is a unitary authority which combines the powers and functions that are normally delivered separately by county and district councils.
These responsibilities include but are not limited to housing, waste management, waste collection, council tax collection, education, libraries, social services, transport, planning, consumer protection and licensing.
