About 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.
There is some confusion as to what the difference is between a Parish and Town Council. The answer is simple, nothing, they are exactly the same. However, a Town Council can elect a Mayor to be Head of Council instead of a Chairperson. Birchwood Town Council chooses to have a Chairperson, and in May of each year a Chair is elected by the Council to serve for a period of 12 months. The Chair for 2019-2020 is Cllr Nigel Reeves.
Cllr Ian Atkin (outgoing Chair) congratulates Cllr Nigel Reeves on his appointment as Chair of the Town Council for 2019/20.
Cllr Dominic Breslin is Vice Chair of the Town Council for 2019/20.
