Framlingham Town Council consists of 11 locally elected or co-opted Councillors who serve for a four year term. All Councillors are required to comply with the Code Of Conduct and register their interests. They receive no payment, and are not to be confused with District (East Suffolk) or County (Suffolk) councillors who have political affiliation.

If you would like to become a councillor or find out more about what they do then please contact the Town Clerk. The next election will take place in May 2023. However Councillors positions become available whenever a Councillor resigns, and may be replaced via co-option or by a special election.
We have had a recent change in our staff with the retirement of Eileen Coe in December 2022. We now have a full time Town Clerk, a part time Responsible Finance Officer, and a part time Deputy Clerk to Framlingham Council who work with East Suffolk Council and Suffolk County Council to deliver the range of services provided. The Clerks can be contacted by phone or email.
We also employ Jane Parlone as a part time Office Assistant.
