Welcome to Leek Town Council

leektowncounciloffice300wKnown locally as the "Queen of the Moorlands", the busy market town of Leek has a population of 20,000 and is situated in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands. Leek was voted runner up in the Telegraph's 2013 best high street competition due to the great mix of independent and national shops, as well as the thriving weekly indoor and outdoor markets on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and the monthly Fine Food market.The very popular Totally Locally market is also held in the town centre on the first Sunday of each month, selling a range of crafts and gifts. We are a Fairtrade Town and have recently been re-accredited Fairtrade Town status.

Leek Town Council is responsible for the Nicholson War Memorial and free guided tours take place on the third Saturday of each month during March to November from 10.00am to 12.20pm. The tours last forty minutes and there is no need to book ahead, just contact a Volunteer Guide at the war memorial on the day. If a school or community group would like a specially arranged tour, please contact the Town Clerk. 

The Town Council is made up of twelve councillors who are elected to office every four years. At the helm of the council is the Leek Town Mayor who is appointed for a twelve- month term. The current Mayor is Cllr. Keith Harrison and the Deputy Mayor, Cllr. Pamela Wood.


Our responsibilities include the maintenance of seven allotment sites, the town War Memorials, Ball Haye Green Recreation Ground, the Christmas lights, summer flower displays, street furniture and various town centre events.
