Chaired by Councillor Mike Smith

The Town Council’s Environment Committee is authorised by the Full Council to take responsibility for the protection and improvement of the town.

We make recommendations to the Full Council regarding any land or property
purchases or sales, seeking professional advice where appropriate.

We keep an eye on work required to footpaths, pavements, cycle-ways, roads,
waterways, horticultural and arboriculture works, street furniture (seats, planters and waste bins), play areas, and play equipment.

However, not all of this falls within the Town Council remit, so we liaise closely with our District and County Council partners on the maintenance of those items for which they have specific responsibility.

Much of our ‘estate’ comprises Chandos and Bourton Parks, the Railway Walk and other open spaces. Apart from ensuring that these areas are properly maintained, we work closely with the Conservation Volunteers and various ‘friends’ groups to maintain and improve these valuable resources and protect the indigenous wild life.
