BIRCHWOOD TOWN COUNCIL
Birchwood Town Council is the first tier of local government and is therefore the closest to the local community, followed by Warrington Borough Council.
Parish and Town Councils were created in law and they can only act within the law by exercising their powers and functions which have been conferred on them by Statutes (i.e. Acts of Parliament). Town Councils have a number of powers available to them, but the ability to exercise any such powers may sometimes depend upon a number of other other factors such as land ownership, financing or planning approval.
