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 2023.

Contact your local parish council for information on standing as a councillor.
