The Council

Who we are and what we do:

Town (and Parish) Councils are the first tier of local government. Our job is to deliver a wide range of services to meet local needs. Although our powers are relatively limited, it is an important forum for local discussion and accountability. The public are welcome to attend our meetings.

Olney Town Council is here to help you!

Olney Town Council serves a population of just over six thousand people. Our aim is to provide services to the town which you think are important and that make your quality of life better. The Council has been awarded Quality Council status for its commitment to providing the best for the town.


Olney Town Council comprises fifteen Councillors who are elected every four years. The Olney Town Council office, based at The Olney Centre is staffed by the Town Clerk and Deputy Town Clerk. The Town Council has adopted a Code of Conduct for members of the council.  The Code is designed to assist Councillors and Co-opted Members to maintain their high standards of conduct and is based around the seven principles of public life. 

It is important we know what the people of Olney want and we welcome residents contacting us with their views: by letter, email or by visiting our offices in the Olney Centre. 

We are here to represent you in the best way we can. As a Town Council we work closely with Milton Keynes Council, the unitary authority, to find out about their services click here
