Bollington Town Council has a councillor vacancy for Central Ward. If you are interested in applying, please contact us on 01625 572985 or at [email protected].
The Town Council has initiated and/or collaborated on many projects over the years, from the relatively “straightforward” replacement of tricky stiles with kissing gates on our wonderful footpath network, to multi-thousand pound projects such as the Bollington Cross Youth Project. Supported by the Town Hall Team, Councillors and residents have spent many hundreds of volunteer hours making things happen. The more difficult projects may have taken months or years to complete, and may even have had a different group of Councillors at the finish from when they started. However we hope that you agree the wait was worthwhile and much has been achieved by hard work and determination.
Some of the projects below have links to pages where you can find out more, whilst others are just a project heading. Please get in touch if you would like more information about these or any other projects the Town Council is, or could be involved with to make out town a better place.
