Being inclusive

  • Be a welcoming and listening council which acts effectively and promptly for the common good.
  • Keep a balanced point of view, support the participation of all parties and broker consensus when there are opposing views.
  • Engage and communicate effectively with business, education, health and all community groups.

Deliver value for money

This means that CTC aims to

  • Create and manage the budget of the town so that we deliver value for money for the community.
  • Keep the town running properly and support civic amenities from the Town Hall and Cemetery to bus
    shelters and town signs.
  • Operate services to ensure the town always looks clean and attractive and instils a sense of pride in the wider community and our visitors.

Manage business efficiently

This means that CTC aims to

  • Meet its legal obligations as a Town Council.
  • Manage its staff and contractors properly.
