Your Council

How We Work

Framlingham Town Council is your local tier of Government dealing only with the town of Framlingham.

Suffolk County Council and East Suffolk Council deal directly with many different aspects of the town.
When you look up for something in our A-Z of Services you will be directed to the correct authority dealing with that matter.

How the Council works, the way decisions are made and what the Council can do are all governed by the local government act and the Council's agreed policies. See: Framlingham Town Council Standing Orders

All Council and Committee meetings are open to members of the public and begin with time for public questions and comments. It is a requirement that Councillors attend meetings, but the public can also join via Zoom.

Details of how to join a meeting can be found on the Committee Agenda for each meeting. Agendas include Zoom invites if you can't attend in person.
Find a meeting and all the public meeting papers at: Meetings Agendas Minutes

Full Council Meetings

These take place on the first Wednesday of each month (with the exception of August), in the Castle Community Rooms, which is opposite the Town Council offices.
This is when Councillors make all decisions collectively on policy matters, anything requiring expenditure over £500, and all planning recommendations which are referred up to Suffolk County Council.
