Councillor Vacancies on Staverton Parish Council
Are you inspired to get involved in your Parish Council to make a real difference at local level?
We are looking for two new Councillors by a process called co-option, which means that people may put themselves forward without going through a local election process.
Who can be a Parish Councillor?
You must be:
- At least 18 and a British, Commonwealth or EU Citizen
- On the electoral roll for the area, or have worked or occupied as owner or tenant, any land or premises in the district for at least a year
What does a Parish Councillor do?
At a basic level, attend monthly meetings (held on the first Wednesday of the month, alternating usually between Staverton and Landscove, where planning and community matters are discussed. You can join a Working Group (like the Neighbourhood Plan, Finance or Climate Emergency), advocate for changes in our area by speaking to our District Councillor, look after our public spaces and allotments, and just generally seek to make this Parish continue to be a lovely place to live.
Please send a brief paragraph about yourself and what you can bring to the role to the Clerk, Karen Smith, who can be contacted on email@example.com
If you would like to have an informal chat about what it is like to be a Parish Councillor, then give one of the current Councillors a ring. Contact details can be found at https://www.staverton.org/staverton-parish-council/parish-councillors/
