Sheringham Town Council

Sheringham Town Council (STC) has 16 members who are unpaid Public Servants. They are the first tier of Local Government, raising taxes through a percept each year to cover the local services and projects for which it is responsible.

The strength of a local council is that it is able to make a unique response to the needs of the community of Sheringham, with a sensitivity, that neither North Norfolk District Council or Norfolk County Council can achieve. STC also has a vital role to play in representing the interests of the community it serves and influencing other decision makers.
