The West Mersea Town Council Action Plan was approved at the Council Meeting held on 8th February 2024, and updated on 7 May 2024. 

West Mersea Town Council strives to work on behalf of the residents to ensure that West Mersea is a well maintained and attractive place to live. The Town Council welcomes comments and suggestions for new projects. This Action Plan covers a three-year period, owing to the size and complexity of the projects that the Town Council are planning to undertake.
The plan also includes the ongoing general maintenance work that the Town Council is obliged to undertake as well as less financially demanding projects which are enhancing to the local environment. The plan is reviewed on an annual basis alongside the budget and updated when applicable.
Items on this Action Plan are in the budget, but note that these are subject to change, pending Town Council approval.
