Councillor vacancies

Are you passionate about your community? Do you want to help make a long-lasting change? Do you have innovative ideas for the council? Do you have concerns about a specific issue and want to do something about it? If this is you, then we need you. We need people from all backgrounds and experiences who reflect their community to put themselves forward for election. Make a change and become a councillor. Local councils can only be as helpful, connected and energetic as the people elected to run them, so we need councillors capable, enthusiastic and engaged to reflect their communities.

We currently have vacancies for 3 councillors to join our team. To stand as a councillor 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 local 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 local council serves (as your principal or only place of work); or live within three miles of the local council boundary
