There is a Casual Vacancy for a Parish Councillor in Balcombe – via Co-option (date for calling an election has expired).
WHAT DO COUNCILLORS DO?
Councillors are the champions of their community and give residents a voice on the decisions the council makes. Becoming a councillor will allow you to make a real difference in your community by engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs; making decisions on which services and projects the council should take forward, and getting involved locally to ensure the services are meeting your community’s needs.
HOW MUCH TIME DOES A COUNCILLOR NEED TO DEDICATE? Councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for council work. This often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking on behalf of the council to other bodies.
CAN I STAND?
There are only a few rules: You must be:
• at least 18 years’ old
• a British citizen, an eligible Commonwealth citizen or a citizen of any member state of the European Union, and
• Live or work in Balcombe
