Watton twinned with Weeze, Germany

There are three tiers of local Government, each with different responsibilities.

The Town Council works with Breckland District Council and Norfolk County Council 

Wayland Hall Works

Please accept apologies that the Town Council meetings cannot be live streamed at present due to refurbishment of the Council Chamber at Wayland Hall. Members of the public are of course welcome to attend Town Council meetings.

The works in the Chamber are being undertaken to create an area which will be shared with the Museum 4 Watton. It is exciting that this joint venture will allow the Museum to display more of the history of the town as well as providing an improved space for Town Council meetings. We are all looking forward to the completion of the work.

Thriving People & Places” is a year-long-project and will be a significant undertaking for Breckland District Council, helping Breckland bounce back from the challenges of Covid-19 and build a strong and sustainable economy for the future.
