The Ferndown Town Council

Ferndown Town Council is one of the largest Town Councils in Dorset and includes the main community of Ferndown, plus the distinct communities at Longham, Hampreston, Stapehill West and Tricketts Cross. There are 17 town councillors who serve for four years. The Town Council Office and Council Chamber are located in the Barrington Centre in Pennys Walk . Meetings of the Town Council and its Committees are open to the public.

The Town Council has the following committees Planning Consultative Committee, Finance & General Purposes Committee, Recreation, Leisure & Amenities Committee, Natural Environment Committee, Personnel Committee, and the KGV Management Committee and KGV Sole Trustees.

All of the Town Councillors are Trustees of the King George's Field Charity (Ferndown) and this organisation is responsible for the 50 acre playing fields which include tennis courts, a bowling green and the regular football and cricket pitches. The children's playground which has been redeveloped as an accessible playground for all children, whatever their level of ability or disability, is an example of the enthusiasm and determination of the Trustees of the Charity to address the needs of the community.

The Town Council's mission is to provide a safe, high quality environment to meet the needs of residents and visitors and defend the best interests of the Town for the benefit of everyone. You may read our Mission Statement here.
