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.

Update from Westbury Town Council – Council and Committee meetings.

Due to a temporary change of law during the pandemic, councils were permitted to hold committee meetings remotely and Westbury Town Council began to live stream meetings using a remote meeting device, which has allowed members of the public to join and watch meetings remotely.

This temporary change of law ceased in May 2021 and meetings were required to take place face-to-face yet the town council continued to live stream these meetings as well.

This has however impacted in the sound quality both at the physical meeting and via the live stream and to help improve the sound quality, the town council have now approved with immediate effect to stop live streaming committee meetings.

Members of the public are welcome to attend any of our committee meetings which are held at The Laverton, and to ask questions. Committee meetings are open to the public and press and begin with a public forum. Start times are always detailed on the agenda which are posted a week before our meetings on our website as well as notice boards in the High Street (by the Rotunda) and The Laverton.

More information, including meeting dates, agendas and minutes can be found on our website…

https://www.westburytowncouncil.gov.uk/wtc/town-council-meeting/

https://www.westburytowncouncil.gov.uk/dept/agenda-minutes/

https://thelaverton.co.uk/

Please note, the council will revert to live streaming if public or other access was to be needed, or there were changes to guidance or other related concerns.

Thank you.
