There is currently 1 vacancy. The Council's nomination form is available here.
There are two ways to become a Parish Councillor (if you qualify to hold the post*).
Co-option – this is the process by which a Council vacancy can be filled by a vote of the existing Cllrs. This usually occurs when a seat has become vacant in between elections, and there hasn’t been enough electors requesting a by-election.
Election – during a normal election period, or if a by-election has been called to fill a vacant seat, members of the public can stand for election. There are specific rules about how to do this, and there is advice available online.
A Good Councillor Guide publication is available here. If you are interested in becoming a Councillor please contact the clerk
*Eligibility criteria can be found here. Prospective co-option candidates must fulfil the same criteria requirements as those for qualifications for candidature for an election.
