Councillor

Vacancy for Parish Councillor – Upper Stratton Ward

The Council invites applications from candidates who satisfy the eligibility criteria for being a Councillor.

A written application for consideration for Co-option should be sent to The Clerk to the Council, outlining skills, experience and why you would make a good Councillor. Please include your name, address and contact details and how long you have lived in the parish.

Nominations for Co-option will be considered at the next Council meeting on Tuesday 8 May 2018 at 7.00 pm, Stratton Suite, Grange Leisure. You are invited to attend this meeting and address the Council.

 

Eligibility for Co-option

A council may need to investigate or obtain evidence about a candidate’s eligibility to be a Councillor if this is challenged.

To be able to stand as a candidate you must:

  • be at least 18 years old on the day of your nomination
  • be a British citizen, an eligible Commonwealth citizen or a citizen of any other member state of the European Union

 

Meet at least one of the following four qualifications:

  • A Commonwealth citizen or a citizen of a member state of the European Union.

There are certain people who are disqualified from being elected to a parish or community council in England and Wales. You cannot be a candidate if at the time of your nomination and on the day of the election:

  • You are employed by the parish/community council or hold a paid office under the parish/community council (including joint boards or committees).
