Welcome to Westbury Town Council

Working for a better Westbury

A former Victorian mill town, Westbury in Wiltshire has a more interesting and significant history than you might imagine. Situated on the western edge of Wiltshire, its most famous landmark is the impressive Westbury White Horse carved into the chalk which is visible for miles around.

Many of the town’s oldest buildings can be seen in the conservation area around the Market Place – a charming old square which leads through to the churchyard with the 14th century Grade 1 listed All Saints Church and then on to Church Street to find one of the oldest operational swimming baths in the country.

Westbury is exceptionally well-positioned for all UK major road and railway connections with the mainline railway station offering links to London, Wales and the whole of the South West of England.

The variety of surrounding countryside makes Westbury a delight for both the walker and cyclist and with places to shop, eat and visit, Westbury has a certain charm that makes it attractive to residents and visitors alike.

Westbury is bounded by Gloucestershire, Berkshire, Hampshire, Dorset and Somerset.

Dear Residents, Unfortunately the live stream of the town council meeting that took place on Monday 17th May 2021, was not available for the public to see and hear. This was caused by a failure to make the meeting live. We sincerely apologise for this error and assure you this will not happen in the future. In the meantime, we will prioritise the minutes and have these available on the website for your information as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We did have several members of the public join us and it was lovely to see familiar faces inside The Laverton again.
