Who we are & what we do

Daventry Town Council

In 1972, The Charter Trustees were formed to look after Daventry's charters and town regalia after the change in local government and the formation of the Daventry District Council.

From the 31st of March 2003 a new Daventry Town Council was established consisting of 17 members, who give their time on a voluntary basis and are elected every four years. This all changed in May 2021, when the Town's wards reduced to four and councillors to 16 .

In April 2021, Northamptonshire's County Council and its seven District and Borough councils were replaced by two new councils. Daventry, Northampton, South Northamptonshire and Northamptonshire County Councils were combined to form the West Northamptonshire Council.

Daventry Town Council is responsible for: Allotments, Care and Conservation of the War Memorial, Cemetery and Burials, Civic and Mayoral Engagements, Community Grants, Christmas Lights, Daventry Museum, Daventry Town Council Dial-A-Ride, Hanging Baskets, Market, Consultee on Town Planning Matters, Landscaping for both the Twinning and War Memorial sites, Maintenance of open spaces, Public Engagement, Town Events.

The Town Council also owns and manages CCTV and through its Community Ranger service works collaboratively with the Police and CCTV Control Room to combat crime and anti-social behaviour to make Daventry a safer place to live, work and visit.

The Council office and Council Chamber is located at 3 New Street, Daventry, NN11 4BT, where Council and Council Committee meetings are held on a monthly basis - see Council Meetings or our What's On page for more information.
