Parish Councillors


It takes all sorts of people to become a Parish Councillor. You do not need special skills or experience and you get training to help you develop.

We all have different experiences, skills interests – perhaps you would like to get more activities for young people, support local businesses to thrive, make decisions on planning applications or improve services generally.

Sound like you? Then you could be just the person to make a difference by becoming a councillor

There will be local elections in May 2015 for Parish Councillors and we will be providing further information about this process in due course. If you are interested in becoming a Parish Councillor and being involved in the local community please contact the Parish Council Manager on 0116 2771450.
