Framlingham Councillors

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.
