Welcome to the website of the
Handforth Town Council
Handforth is a fast-growing community connecting Cheshire to Greater Manchester, with a major retail centre and luxury car outlets, and easy access to Manchester Airport.
The aim of this website is to provide you with information about how the Council operates, detailing decisions it has made in the past and what it hopes to achieve in the future.
The Council was formed in May 2011 and consists of seven councillors representing three wards. Meetings are held in public and time is always set aside for public participation on agenda items.
In addition the Council holds committee meetings dealing with specific areas, Finance, Employment and Planning & Environment. As the work load in these areas varies throughout the year, meetings are held as and when required, with planning meetings being the ones held most frequently.
The timings, agendas and minutes for all meetings are displayed further down on this page together with all the principal activities of the council and details of its members.
