Who Does What?                       


Who looks after you in Marlow?

Each council plays a different role. Do you know which council empties your dustbins, runs the Marlow Library, owns our allotments, repairs broken lights, owns and runs our cemetery and chapel, or is responsible for Higginson Park?

We know it can be confusing and it’s not always easy to find out who is responsible for what - which can sometimes be frustrating. The information below is designed to point you in the right direction and the Marlow Town Council office will always try and help you with your initial queries and put you on the right path, even if they can’t help directly. We all work together to try and ensure the best for the residents of Marlow.
