About Us

Leighton-Linslade Town Council operates from its head office at The White House, Hockliffe Street and its staff and councillors are constantly striving to make the town a better place to live and to work.

Vision: “A community to be proud of”.

Mission: To achieve high quality services and promote wellbeing for our community.

Corporate Aims:

  • To consolidate processes and procedures to ensure operational efficiency and a  structure which will underpin future service delivery by the Town Council.
  • To promote and develop a vibrant town through partnership working and initiatives including management of the street market, provision of town and community promotions, town centre enhancements, tourism and practical support for local businesses.
  • To provide great public open spaces, varied opportunities for sport and leisure and to exceed expectations in delivering cemetery and allotment services.

Council Performance: The Town Council continually strives for excellence and regularly monitors its performance to ensure that it responds to the needs of the community. The Council works in partnership with a number of other public and private sector organisations to improve its services and has recently qualified for the Local Council Award Scheme.

We are continually striving to obtain ‘value for money’ from all our services in how we manage and use your money, time and people. In recent years, by making such comparisons, we have brought our costs down on various services e.g. staffing, photocopying, electricity and gas.
