Welcome to Keynsham Town Council website

 

 Keynsham Town Council was formed in 1991 to replace Keynsham Urban District Council and aims to provide quality local services, amenities and representation at the best possible standard within a realistic budget. The services and activities that come under the responsibility of the Town Council are detailed on the pages of this website.

The Town Council has a membership of 15 Councillors, with 5 representing each of the 3 Wards Keynsham North Keynsham South and Keynsham East.

 Elections for the Town Council are held every four years and the last elections were in May 2019. Casual vacancies can arise during the four year term and these are either filled via co-option or, if requested by 10 residents, a by-election.


Town Councillors do not receive any payment for being elected Members and offer their time voluntarily for the benefit of the local community.

The Principle (or Unitary) Authority is Bath & North East Somerset Council. It deals with many services including waste collection, council tax, blue badge, parking. highways and environmental issues. B&NES can be contacted via Council Connect on 01225 394041 or by emailing councilconnect@bathnes.gov.uk

TOWN COUNCIL PLAY AREAS UPDATE

During this current period of heavy usage and wet weather, the grass within the Town Council's Play Areas is becoming very wet and muddy and in some cases irrepairably damaged .

We're sure some parents may be happy for their children to get muddy, however the Town Council is concerned about the slip hazard for both adults and children - especially elderly relatives. 

Whilst the Town Council will do everything it can to keep the play areas open, which will include putting down sand or roping off areas of grass,  there may be some occasions where a play area will have to temporarily close until the weather improves, the grass has a chance to recover and it is safe to walk on for all visitors

The Play Areas are inspected on Monday and Friday mornings and an update will be published below on their status.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO USE THE PLAY AREAS RESPONSIBLY AND RESPECT ALL THE SAFETY SIGNAGE.
