Mablethorpe and Sutton Town Council
The Town Council was formed in 1974 following the unitary re-organisation of Local Government in England.
The area is made up of the communities of Mablethorpe, Sutton-on-Sea, Trusthorpe and Sandilands.
The Council adopted the title of ‘Town Council’ at its formation, however, its responsibilities and powers are identical to those as a parish council.
All parish / town council's operate using POWERS & DUTIES.
Duties are functions or procedures the Council must carry out by law and Powers are functions or services the Council may carry out.
The Council is made up of 19 Councillors representing seven wards in the area with all wards having three Councillors, except for Highgate Lane ward which has one Councillor. The full Town Council meets at six weekly intervals and in addition there are three standing committees (Administration; Community Amenities & Planning) with responsibilities for the Town Council’s day to day functions.
Meetings are usually held on Monday evenings at 7.00 p.m. in the Community Room, Mablethorpe Library and Community Access Point, Stanley Avenue, Mablethorpe, LN12 1DP. The public are welcome and encouraged to attend and provision is made at all meetings for public participation.
In May each year, the Council elects a serving Councillor to become the Chairman of the Council and to hold the office of “Town Mayor”.
