Frome Town Council

Frome Town Council is a ‘parish authority’ for the town of Frome.

As a parish or town council, Frome Town Council has an overall responsibility for the wellbeing of the local community.

Our work covers these main categories:

  • Delivering services to meet local needs
  • Representing the local community
  • Striving to improve quality of life in Frome

How does it happen?

Frome Town Council is made up of 17 Councillors, who meet regularly to make decisions on the work and direction of the Council Staff. The Council as a whole is responsible to the people it represents – that’s you, the local community!

Attending a council meeting is the best way to find out what we do. Check out our news stories here to keep up-to-date with what we’re working on at the moment. You can also find out more about the council by having a look round our website and social media channels.
