Welcome to Braunstone Town Council's website. 
In 2017 we reach our 90th year serving the people of Braunstone as your Parish Council.  It is also the 40th anniversary since our community became a Town.   

Mission Statement.
We exist to ensure that local services and the environment reach the highest possible standards within the resources available for citizens, visitors and those who work in Braunstone Town; to provide a focus for civic pride; to listen, identify and respond to agreed local needs; and to help develop a strong, secure, self reliant, self confident community, free from unlawful discrimination. "Spectemur. Agendo" translates "Let us be Judged by Our Actions"
