Town and Parish Councillors are volunteers who give their time freely, and are not entitled to claim expenses except for occasional travel costs on council business.
Councillors are required to attend one Full Council meeting a month as a minimum, but many do far more. A typical Councillor will often sit on several internal and external committees, relay residents concerns to the appropriate agency, and attend meetings and training which benefits the development of the council and the town.
No specific skills or qualifications are required to become a councillor, all that is required is a willingness to attend meetings and involve yourself in the community. There are certain residency requirements for Councillors, details of which can be obtained from the Clerk on request.
Councillors often have specific interests reflected by the committees and external bodies which they are members of.
We often have vacancies for Councillors - please contact the Clerk firstname.lastname@example.org for details of current vacancies.
