Three Town councillors are also Westmorland and Furness councillors.

In April/May every year the Annual Town Meeting is held. It is presided over by the Mayor who provides a report on the work of the Town Council for that year; the budget is available for scrutiny and the Mayor distributes cheques to local charities from his/her charity fund.

In May every year, a new Mayor and Deputy Mayor are elected at the Town Council meeting. The Mayor is also the Chair of the Council and acts in a Civic and Ceremonial role. A Civic Sunday ceremony takes place in June.

The Leader of the Council is normally the leader of the largest political group on the Council. This role is principally to ensure that due democratic process is followed if a Town Council vacancy occurs. A full description of this role can be found in the Council’s Standing Orders.

Ulverston Town Council meets on the third Monday of every month at 7pm at Croftlands Community Centre. It deals with all planning issues, and other issues brought to it for consideration by the Standing Committees. For example, it will approve the annual budget, presented by the Finance and General Purposes Committee. It has the final say on all matters.

There are four Standing Committees of the Council:

  • Finance and General Purposes
  • HR
  • Allotments
  • Environmental Sustainability
