Introduction to Bourne Town Council
Bourne Town Council came into being in 1974 following the Local Government Act 1972.  Although called "Town Council" its responsibilities and powers are the same as any Parish Council.  It has certain duties that it must undertake by law and carries out activities within its boundary.  The Parish is made up of Bourne and the villages of Cawthorpe, Dyke and Twenty. 

The Town Council, which meets nominally at six-weekly intervals, is made up of 15 councillors.  The Parish is divided into 4 areas (wards), "Cawthorpe" 6 Councillors, "Dyke Fen" 2 Councillors, "North Fen" 2 Councillors and South Fen 5 Councillors.Each year, in May, one of the numbers is elected as Chairman of the Council, also known as the Town Mayor.  The Council is served by the Town Clerk  and one Assistant who carry out the day-to-day management of the Council and implement its decisions ensuring that all the legal requirements are complied with by the Council.
