Ever thought of becoming a Town Councillor?

As a Councillor representing your community, you will help keep it a great place to live and work.  

As representatives of the first tier of Local Government and the closest to their communities, Local Councillors are best placed to engage with their residents and find out what the real local issues are and how to overcome them.

Local Councils welcome and are committed to the inclusion and recognition of all regardless of race, culture, ability, ethnicity or gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, marital status, religious affiliation, and socioeconomic status.

To become a Councillor, you must: 

Be a UK or Commonwealth citizen; or be a citizen of the Republic of Ireland; or be a citizen of another Member State of the European Union

Be at least 18 years old

Be an elector of the Local Council; or in the past 12 months occupied land or other premises in the area the Local Council serves (as owner or tenant); or work in the area the Local Council serves (as your principal or only place of work); or live within three miles of the Local Council boundary.

We recommend that you browse the Council’s website, observe Full Council Meetings and read the Minutes from previous Committee Meetings, which should give you an understanding of the discussions held.

If you are interested in standing as a Town Councillor you will need to contact the Election Office or the Town Clerk.
