The Council currently has an annual budget of £449,100.00 for 2018-19, and a precept of £388,398.00. It uses this funding to help finance numerous local initiatives, e.g. for youth service provision and for the maintenance of play parks and public open spaces including the Country Park and future allotments. In the future it is likely to take on the Younghayes Centre and further assets.
The Council is also involved in working with the developers and other partners to resolve outstanding issues affecting the town and to propose suggestions for improvements to its existing and future infrastructure, e.g. utilities, play areas, street scene and landscaping issues, the Country Park and the train station.
The Council is involved in planning for the new town hall, to be situated in the town centre, which it hopes will incorporate the council offices and meeting rooms, small offices for business hire, a library, one or more cafés, the Country Park Ranger accommodation and public toilets.
