Keighley Town Council was formed by Order from the Secretary of State on 1st April 2002, with the elections for Town Councillors taking place on 2nd May 2002.
The inaugural Meeting of Keighley Town Council took place at 7 pm on Thursday 16th May 2002, in the Council Chambers, Keighley Town Hall, Bow Street, Keighley West Yorkshire.
Thirty Councillors represent fifteen wards. This new Town Council serves a population of over 52,000 (larger than many District councils) making it one of the largest in the country. Already it is establishing credibility and respect in the town and beyond its boundaries. Keighley Council strives to be open and accessible to everyone and this website will form part of that information strategy.
