Following a Referendum of the town’s people in May 2003 and the subsequent approval of the Secretary of State, Folkestone Town Council was formed in June 2004, although Folkestone had been a Borough Council up until 1974. To read more, please go to the ‘About Folkestone‘ page.

We at Folkestone Town Council are proud to live in a diverse and tolerant society. Racism, xenophobia and hate crimes have no place in our country. Our council condemns racism, xenophobia and hate crimes unequivocally. We will not allow hate to become acceptable. We reassure all people living in this area that they are valued members of our community.
