Broxtowe Borough Council
Broxtowe Borough Council is currently Conservative controlled. In May 2015, we took control over the Council, with 27 members being elected! Over the last few years, we've done some great things, including investing £500,000 in our parks and playgrounds, regenerating Beeston Town Centre and freezing council tax for all Broxtowe residents. It's fair to say, we've been busy!
The Council is made up of committees and working groups, each having their own remit. To find out more about each committee visit Broxtowe Borough Council's committee page. Check out who chairs each committee below.
