How to Become a Parish Councillor

There are two ways to become a village councillor.

  • You can be elected once every four years.
  • You can be co-opted during that time following the resignation of another councillor. To do that you’ll need to complete the application form and be supported in a meeting by at least two councillors.

If you would like to pursue either of those please get in touch with the clerk on 07469 184 120 or

What does being a councillor mean?

You will:

  • get free professional training
  • be supported in your role
  • be part of a team
  • make a difference

The commitment you would make is to attend an ordinary meeting every other month on the second Wednesday and to read a small amount of relevant material beforehand.
