Keynsham Town Council

The Town Council is committed to working with the community of Keynsham (residents of all ages, local groups - both of interest and geography, voluntary sector, visitors and those working in the town) to improve the way it can contribute to the life of the town.

  • Consulting - seeking the views of the community
  • Involving - actively involving the community in decision making
  • Acting together - where decisions are made in partnership with other agencies
  • Empowering - supporting independent community initiatives
  • Feedback - provide feedback to the community on how their input has influenced the decisions made
