Dawlish Town Council came into being in 1974 and operates from The Manor House, Old Town Street.  Its staff and 16 councillors are constantly striving to make the town a better place to live, visit and work.

The Town Clerk, Andrew McKenzie, is the Proper Officer and Yola Mitchell is the Responsible Financial Officer for the Town Council with a further 4 members of staff carrying out important roles within the Council. View our staffing structure.

On behalf of the community, the council seeks to influence other agencies in the use of their powers and resources. It also acts to improve co-ordination between agencies.
