The Town Council


Your Town Council and its Members are here to help and represent you. Councillors are elected by the residents every four years. We are the first tier of local government and are funded by a precept, which is paid by the residents of Rugeley via the Council Tax.

Find out what we do by reading the agendas and minutes and see how you can have your say in local matters. If we aren't the correct authority to deal with your query, we will happily point you in the right direction and represent you if appropriate.

Rugeley Town Council Offices can be accessed from Taylors Lane - to the rear of the Rose Theatre and Community Centre;
or off Church Street, behind the Aelfgar Surgery.

Normal office hours are Monday - Friday 10am - 3pm.
