Parish and town councils
Becoming a parish or town councillor
We regularly consult with parish and town councils before we make decisions that affect their community. Becoming a parish or town councillor is therefore an excellent way of influencing these decisions, and those of other organisations that affect your community.
Parish and town councillors are elected by local residents. Elections take place every 4 years. Parish and town council elections took place in May 2019.
Contact your local parish council for information on standing as a councillor.
