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 has opened a Community Cafe for all to use. The Council is currently negotiating about the future of the parks of Nelson. We hope you find this site useful. 


Eid Mubarak from Nelson Town Council

Because Muslims follow the Lunar Calendar, this year Eid-Ul-Fitr will be celebrated on either Tuesday 4th, Wednesday 5th June 2019 or Thursday 6th June. Eid-Ul-Fitr marks the end of the month of Ramadhan in which Muslims fast from the morning twilight to the evening twilight.

Councillor Zafar Ali, Chairman Nelson Town Council, said: “The month of Ramadhan has been a blessing for Muslims around the world. We’ve seen once again the real message of Ramadhan on display at community Iftars and charity events in Pendle. Its magnificent to see integration and diversity at the heart of Ramadhan in Pendle. After a month of fasting it is now the time where everyone will be rejoicing the words- Eid Mubarak!"

Cllr. Nazeem Hayat, Vice-Chairman, Nelson Town Council said: "Eid Mubarak from me and my colleagues at Nelson Town Council. I was fortunate to join in with some community Iftars and I’m proud to be a part of such a diverse community here in Nelson, Pendle."

On behalf of Nelson Town Council, we wish everyone in Nelson, Lancashire and throughout the UK- Eid Mubarak. #Nelson #Pendle #Eidmubarak
