How Council Works
The Council spends £21 million providing a wide range of quality services to the 86,000 people living in the area - evidence in itself that the Council is involved in many aspects of the Borough.

craigavonThe Council provides over 80 services to the local population. Key services include refuse collection and disposal, street cleansing, community development, economic development, environmental health, leisure services, parks provision, arts, tourism development and sports development.

Our Vision is to "serve and lead people in Craigavon". To continuously improve and develop our services and our leadership so that by working together we improve our quality of life, develop pride in our community and shape our future.

Main Council Functions

The Council is responsible for three main functions;

  • Service Provision


  • Advocacy - The Council represents all the residents in the Borough and lobbies Government Agencies and other bodies to acquire benefits for the Borough through both a consultative and representative role. Councillors can also influence education, planning, roads, health & social services by representing local people's interests. However, the Council does not have any direct responsibility for these areas.

  • Development - The Council acts as the main body in attracting investment for further developments throughout the Borough and helps other organisations to do likewise.
  • Main Council Meeting

    The main Council meeting is where decisions made by all the Committees are usually ratified. They are held on the first and third Monday of every month at 6.00pm at the Civic Centre and are open to the public.

    Irish and Ulster Scots Voicemail Service

    The Council now provides an Irish and Ulster Scots voicemail service for any member of the public who wishes to ring using these languages. Simply ring the Council and ask to be put through to the service.  You will then hear a voicemail message in that language and be asked to leave your message.  We will then have your message translated and a response sent.
