Sheringham Town Council
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 precept 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.

This popular, purpose built site is located in an attractive area of sheringham with views over the golf course, the North Norfolk Railway and the sea. A more beautiful location for relaxing and connecting with the environment could not be found.
