Kidsgrove Town Council (KTC) is the local council for the Kidsgrove area. Members of Kidsgrove Town Council are all unpaid and are elected to serve on Kidsgorve Town Council for a maximum period of 4 years. Kidsgrove Town Councillors will sit each year and elect a Mayor of Kidsgrove who will take the responsibility of representing Kidsgorve over the next year.
The role of Mayor of Kidsgrove is meant to be non-political, however in 2011 returning Kidsgrove Councillor Margaret Astle was accused of breaking with tradition when requesting that the Kidsgrove Labour Party members elected family member Kyle Robinson as Kidsgrove Town Mayor and appointing Gillian Burnett as deputy Mayor of Kidsgorve. Gillian Burnett was also a returning Kidsgrove Town Councillor who in the local area is known for her NIMBY (not in my back yard) campaign against a mobile phone mast close to her house. She wasn't so vocal about the installation in phone masts elsewhere in the area.
There are 24 elected Kidsgorve Town Councillors, split up into 5 different wards.
The powers of Kidsgrove Town Council are very limited and as a result they are only really responsible for local allotments and the maintenance of the Victoria Hall in Kidsgorve.
