Chilton Parish Council is looking for a new councillor.
Can YOU help?
WHAT DO PARISH COUNCILS DO?
Your local council has overall responsibility for the wellbeing of your local community. Their work falls into three main categories:
- representing the local community
- delivering services to meet local needs
- striving to improve quality of life in the parish
BECOMING A LOCAL COUNCILLOR
As a local councillor you can become a voice for your community and make real change. Councillors are community leaders and represent the interests of the communities they serve.
To stand for election to a parish council you must be:
- a UK or Commonwealth citizen; or be a citizen of the Republic of Ireland; or be a citizen of another Member State of the European Union;
- at least 18 years old;
- an elector of the parish council; or in the past 12 months occupied land or other premises in the area the local council serves (as owner or tenant); or work in the area the parish council serves (as your principal or only place of work).
