Whether you are a resident, business or visitor, we would like to warmly welcome you to Arundel Town Council’s website. Our beautiful heritage town has so much to offer; from the wonderful castle set against the back drop of the South Downs National Park, to the unique local businesses and friendly community spirit. We, at the Town Council, take pride in serving our community.
Arundel operates under three tiers of local government: Arundel Town Council, Arun District Council and West Sussex County Council. Arundel Town Council comprises 12 Councillors elected every 4 years with our Mayor being elected every year.
The Town Council acts as a consultee and lobbying force with both the County and District Councils, putting forward the wishes and needs of the local community. We meet regularly to make decisions on the work and direction of the Council and staff.
Arundel Town Council aims:
‘To work creatively and closely with the community to make Arundel a thriving town in which to live and work, and a great place to visit.’
