Welcome to the Bognor Regis Town Council website.
Bognor Regis Town Council is the parish council serving the central area of the seaside resort of Bognor Regis in West Sussex, as defined by the four electoral wards of Hotham, Marine, Orchard and Pevensey (see map)
The council is based in the Town Hall in Clarence Road, a 1929 Listed Building. The 16 elected members meet every six weeks, and in between times in various committees which discuss and resolve matters requiring more detailed consideration.
The council elects a Town Mayor each year who chairs full meetings of the council and undertakes many civic duties, as the town’s first citizen. The council also elects a Leader, who takes a lead on policy issues.
The council’s functions can be broadly divided into two main areas; firstly providing local services for residents and visitors that improve the quality of life, such as floral displays, events, allotments and improved street-care services. Secondly, it tries to champion the town’s corner to other statutory providers, for example the District and County Councils and Sussex Police. It does this by commenting on planning applications, or taking Southern Water to task over bathing water quality for example.
The original concept and design of this website was produced by Helen Bicknell, a student of the University of Chichester on placement to the Council in the Spring of 2009.
