Welcome to Fleetwood Town Council
Fleetwood Town Council is your local third tier of Government, working to improve the quality of life for the people of Fleetwood. Its elected and co-opted members represent each ward in Fleetwood, and as a corporate body are responsible for a budget which is used to provide grants to local organisations, fund projects to improve the infrastructure of the community and support the town’s heritage. The town council funds and manages Fleetwood In Bloom, the Festive lights and provides and manages allotments.
A new Council was elected in May 2019 and we’ve been busy ever since. Sadly Covid-19 put paid to many of our plans for the summer. We have been working with Fleetwood Together to ensure those most in need during this crisis are getting the help required.
We also help fund many other events and projects, keep an eye on the media, too many to mention and hope to continue long into the future. We’re also still working with Fleetwood Back on Track and the PWRS in getting our rail link up and running again and I’m very pleased to say central government, after much harassment by ourselves and our MP, have agreed to look into this giving £100,000 towards a feasibility study.
We are still supporting our fabulous Museum through our precept, I’m pleased to have been a member of the council making that decision. It is well worth a visit if you have an interest in our glorious town or maritime history.
Fleetwood in Bloom
We have won Gold with North West in Bloom for the last 2 years and we’re aiming high again for the future.
We help fund the Fleetwood festive lights, keeping Fleetwood shining bright throughout the festive period. We have a lantern parade from Ash street to the Marine Hall, which incorporates an illuminated tram, with thanks to Blackpool Transport, followed by an event at the marine hall culminating in a local school child, chosen by raffle, switching the lights on. A great free event for all families.
