Newbiggin by the Sea Town Council serves an estimated population of 6,300 which includes the village of Woodhorn. It was created in 2009 following the reorganisation of local government in Northumberland and is the first-tier of local government in Newbiggin. The statutory powers of the Town Council are limited and so are its resources but it works with Northumberland County Council and other agencies to deliver a range of services and projects within the town.

Newbiggin by the Sea Town Council takes seriously its responsibility to represent our constituents and obtain the best outcome for them in any negotiations and service.

We aim to influence external agencies to undertake a range of work on our behalf for the benefit of the Town, thereby maximising our limited resources and continue to:

• Provide a democratic and representational voice for the community.
• Support and contribute towards local regeneration and development.
• Seek to ensure quality and economic local council services.
• Liaise with other agencies to preserve and improve public services.

We aim to be a community focused council, striving to make Newbiggin by the Sea a better place to live, work and play.

The position of Assistant Clerk & Projects Officer is an exciting new and challenging opportunity to help shape the style and direction of the Town Council.
