Welcome to Nelson Town Council

Nelson Town Council was one of the newest Town Councils in the Country with its first elections in May 2008.

In the pages which follow, you will find information about the Council, details of the elected Members of the Council, our allotment sites, grants available from the Council and a short history of the Town. In addition, the Agendas and Minutes of the Council and its Committees are also available.

Nelson Town Council runs a number of events throughout the year, including the Food Festival, Lancashire Day and the Christmas Light switch on. The Council also manages the Multi-Use Games areas and supports the provision of CCTV.

The Town Council owns and manages the Unity Wellbeing Centre on Vernon Street and opened a Community Cafe (not currently open due to covid/staffing). The Council is currently negotiating about the future of the parks of Nelson. We hope you find this site useful.
