• Your Council Information


We are a Town Council consisting of sixteen Councillors responsible for the two wards of the Town (Clifton Ward and Townstal Ward), with a total population of approximately 6,000. Councillors stand for re-election every four years and are voted in by the people of Dartmouth.

It should be noted that a Town Councillor is an elected member and they do not receive payment for standing as a Councillor, attending any of the Dartmouth Town Council meetings or carrying out Council business.

The election of Town Mayor, Deputy Mayor and the Chairmen of Council Committees is usually undertaken annually at the Annual Town Council Meeting.
