Some of the councillors are also District and County Council councillors.

In April every year the Annual Town Meeting is held. It is presided over by the Mayor who describes the work of the town council for that year; the budget is available for scrutiny and the Mayor distributes cheques to local charities from his/her Charity fund.

In May every year, a new Mayor and Deputy Mayor are elected at the Town Council meeting. The Mayor is also the Chair of the Council and acts in a Civic and Ceremonial role. A civic Sunday ceremony takes place on the second Sunday in June.

The Leader of the council, is normally the leader of the largest political group on the council. This role is principally to ensure that due democratic process is followed if a town council vacancy occurs. A full description of this role can be found the councils standing orders.

Ulverston Town Council meets on the third Monday of every month at 7pm in the Supper Room at the Coronation Hall.. It deals with all planning issues, and other issues brought to it for consideration by the standing committees. For example, it will approve the annual budget, presented by the Finance and Grants Committee. It has the final say on all matters.

There are three standing committees of the council:

  • Finance and grants
  • HR
  • Allotments.
