Local (town and parish) Councils are led by democratically elected Councillors from the local community. Local Councillors decide on what services and projects the Council will deliver. As representatives of the first tier of local government and the closest to their communities, local Councillors are best placed to engage with their residents and find out what the real local issues are and how to overcome them.
Local Councils are encouraging residents who are passionate about their community to stand for election. Local Councils welcome and are committed to the inclusion and recognition of all regardless of race, culture, ability, ethnicity or gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, marital status, religious affiliation, and socioeconomic status.
There are currently 120,000 Councillors serving on the 10,000 local Councils in England.
Do you, or someone you know, have what it takes to be a local councillor? Contact the Parish Clerk or any of the Councillors to find out about the Parish work in Caversfield and stand for election now.
The Clerk has written a briefing note about how the process works in the area and the time scales.
The Notice of Election was published on 26 March
The Statement of Persons Nominated was published on 3 April. Due to the fact that there were five nominations for seven seats, there will not be an election and the Parish Council will need to co-opt at the May meeting.
