Beverley Town Council

The role of Beverley Town Council is to act as the grassroots tier of local government,
nearest to the residents it serves. It is an elected body that represents the town of
Beverley. It has fourteen councillors and an elected mayor who acts as chairperson of the
council. Mayors of Beverley have been elected since 1573, and the Town Council has an even
longer history, although the present constitution was introduced in 1999. Beverley Town
Council is generously supporting the Beverley Georgian Festival.
