You are welcome to come along to any West Mersea Town Council Meeting to "Have Your Say" on any subject relevant to the Council. Our Council Meetings are held on Thursday evenings approximately every three weeks. Proceedings start at 7pm sharp - fifteen minutes during the meeting are allocated specifically for members of the public to voice their opinions on planning matters or any other subject that comes within the remit of the Council.
When the meeting is in progress the public are no longer allowed to speak unless specifically asked to do so by the Chairman, (usually the Mayor), who will adjourn the meeting temporarily. All are welcome to stay and listen to the Council proceedings.


The Town Meeting takes place in April when the Mayor and the Town Clerk present their annual reports. The meeting is open to the public and residents are invited to ask questions and discuss issues that they may wish the Council to focus upon during the forthcoming year.

annual meeting

The Annual Meeting is held in May when Councillors elect the new Mayor. The Mayor presides for one year.

committee meetings

The public may attend committee meetings.


The Councillors would like to meet with the residents of West Mersea to hear first-hand any views or ideas on how to improve the facilities in West Mersea and to receive any concerns that you may have. A wide spectrum of subjects are raised by members of the public some of which fall outside of West Mersea Town Council's remit but never-the-less will be addressed by the Council through representations with both Colchester Borough Council and Essex County Council. The surgery will be an opportunity to talk to Town Councillors on a face to face basis.

No need to book - just turn up.
Everyone is welcome!
