Welcome to the Dursley Town Council website, designed to provide you with information about both Dursley and its Town Council.
Local businesses can have a say and get involved in the Neighbourhood Development Plan by completing the Dursley Business Survey online here. The views of local businesses are important and we want to ensure that the Neighbourhood Development Plan for Dursley enables businesses to locate to and thrive in the area. Each business that returns a completed survey will be entered into a prize draw to win £25!

Do you care about your Dursley Street? We are looking for people who will spend 1 or 2 hours, with a camera and clipboard, to record the key practical issues on your street and to look at ways that the street can be improved – such as dropped kerbs, footpath resurfacing, getting rid of old street furniture, better bus stops, street lighting, or getting rid of overgrowing vegetation. As part of work to develop a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) we need volunteers to help us audit the streets and footpaths in Dursley. The audits will involve filling out a form and taking photos, noting pot holes, broken paving and any ill-positioned street furniture and raised curbs.
The Council has 2 vacancies in Highfields ward which can be filled by co-option. If you are interested in becoming a Town Councillor please see our Co-option policy or contact the Town Clerk for more information.
