A bit about us

Ilfracombe Town Council was created in 1974 as  the successor to the Ilfracombe Urban District Council.   The council is based in the Ilfracombe Centre which located in the heart of the High Street.

It is the 3rd tier of Local Government after Devon County Council and North Devon District Council and deals only with the Town of Ilfracombe.

The Town itself is split into 2 Wards; East and West, represented by 18 councillors. The ward boundaries can be found for East by clicking here and for West here . The details of the councillors who represent them can also be viewed on the Ilfracombe Town Councillors webpage.

The Town Mayor is Chairman of the Council; she is also the Civic Head of Ifracombe, representing the Town at many civic and other functions.

The Full Town Council meets on the second Monday of each month, with the Staffing CommitteePlanning Committee and the Finance & General Purpose Committee meeting on the 1st, 3rd and 4th Monday of the month respectively.   Meetings are held in the Council Chamber, The Ilfracombe Centre, usually starting at 7pm. (Meetings dates and times are subject to change at the discretion of the Council).

The council also owns both The Lantern Centre and the Ropery Road Car Park.
