Becoming a Councillor

Are you interested in joining the Parish Council?

 

Becoming a parish councillor is a rewarding and valued form of public service. All councillors contribute to the work of the Parish Council by:

  • Having a say about the things they care about

  • Putting forward ideas for better services

  • Responding to the needs and views of parishioners

  • Seeking the best outcome to local issues

  • Getting involved in decision making

  • Helping to make Scole a better place to live!

 

We normally meet on the last Monday of the month meetings commence at 7.00 pm lasting around 2 hours at the Community Centre, Ransome Avenue, Scole.  Councillors are expected to attend meetings on a regular basis.

 

There currently no vacancies on the Parish Council.

The Role of a Councillor

 

A councillor is a member of the council and is normally elected for a term of four years.  People of any political or religious persuasion are eligible to become a councillor, although their personal views should not extend into their parish council work. A councillor is an unpaid voluntary role.

They are elected to represent the interests of the local community as a whole and promote a harmonious local environment. The number of elected councillors depends on the size of the area. In Scole we are able to have 11 councillors.

 

Local councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact for anyone concerned with a community issue. They are democratically elected local authorities and exist in England, Wales and Scotland. The term ‘local council’ is synonymous with ‘parish council’, ‘town council’ and ‘community council’.
