Newtown Town Council

The Town Council office, normally situated above the Robert Owen Museum at The Cross, is temporarily housed in Frolic Street, in offices above Blues Digital and on the same floor as the Food and Land Trust. This is while repairs to Brisco House are being carried out.

The Town Clerk can be reached on 01686 625544 or

Newtown Council comprises 16 elected Members and employs 5 staff, pictured above. The Town Council is responsible for representing local people when decisions are made that may affect them.

Our current priorities are:

  •    Regeneration of the town centre
  •    Improvement of the Charter Market
  •    Establishing Newtown as a visitor destination
  •    Improving play areas and signage
  •    Maintaining our Grade II Listed Building and the Robert Owen Museum
  •    Increasing the number of community events in the town.

Every year, we receive applications for financial and other support towards the activities of local groups. Contact the Town Clerk to request a form.

We work closely with the Chamber of Trade, to support local businesses.
