Nailsworth Town Council
Nailsworth Town Council works to maintain, develop and enhance the Town's unique character.
Welcome to our new website. For the moment we have transferred information about council business from our old site and we will be adding information to the site and developing it over the next few months.
Local Homes for Local People:
Two public meetings have now been held in the town, on 14th October in the Town Hall and on 11th November in Forest Green.
The next step is to form a Steering Committee and this will take place over the next few weeks. A new website has been set up for the proposed CLT, and further information is available there.
Current Council Activities
The conversion of former Police Station to a new Town Information Centre is complete and the TIC has relocated from its former location. We are delighted to have been able to secure this valuable asset for the town.
The Town Plan consultation continues, details below.
The CLT group has called a public meeting, as noted above.
Council Structure Changes
Following full discussions at Council it was decided to disband the Committee structure and deal with Council business at Full Council meetings as from September 2013.
The rationale behind this decision was to speed up the decision making process, to have a structure where all councillors can contribute to debate, to reduce the pressure on Committee Chairs and to allow councillors to be involved in projects that they wouldn’t have been if they were not on a specific committee. Faster decision making and ensuring all Councillors may debate on an equal footing will make Council more effective and responsive in the future.
Meetings are now held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, with the first meeting in the month being mainly themed either 'Environment' or 'Recreation and Amenities'. The second meeting in each month will be a full council meeting that will take reports from District and County Councillors.
Minutes from previous Committee meetings can still be found on the appropriate committee web page. Minutes and agendas of all meetings from September 2013 will be posted on the Minutes & Agendas page.
