Welcome to Folkestone Town Council

The Town Hall and Visitor Services are open Tuesday - Saturday, 10am - 4pm


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. 


Some officers are working flexibly including from home and can be contacted via email or telephone.
