Parish Council

Be a Councillor

If you care about the area you live or work in, you could become a Councillor.


Research tells us that people are most concerned about issues such as crime, schools, transport and the environment. Your local council can make a difference on all these issues and many more, and so can you as a local Councillor. Councillors are elected to the local council to represent their local community, so they must either live or work in the area. Becoming a Councillor is both a rewarding and privileged form of public service. You will be in a position to make a difference to the quality of other people’s daily lives and prospects.

The Councillors for Gt Barton were nominated and elected without a contest - click here to see the Notice of Uncontested Election.  There are currently 3 vacancies.
