Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Emergency

The Council has established a dedicated section of its website to update residents on the impact on Council services, the Council's actions and to provide information. Please click here.  

Abingdon-on-Thames is a vibrant market town with a population of over 33,000. Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council is a parish council under the Local Government Act 1972 and is the successor authority in terms of parish functions to the Abingdon Borough Council. The Town Council is responsible to the residents of Abingdon-on-Thames for a wide range of services. In this section of the Abingdon-on-Thames website we outline these services, as well as information about council meetings, committees, councillors, budget spending and the civic calendar.

The Council's Vision is "to develop an inclusive community so that Abingdon is the place where everyone wants to live and where the wellbeing of residents is prioritised.  In developing this community, the town will be one which is environmentally sustainable, vibrant, resilient and safe." This is core to delivering and developing our services. The Council has adopted four key strategic objectives in order to acheive this Vision:

1 To respond effectively and speedily to the climate emergency.

2 To develop a resilient, sustainable town which will provide a home for residents now and in the future.

3 To manage the Council’s assets efficiently and effectively to meet for the needs of the community now and in the future.

4 To work with community partners to support those who are vulnerable and in need and to create opportunities to increase social inclusivity.
