Casual Vacancy on the Parish Council

Why not become a Parish Councillor?

There are currently two vacancies on the Parish Council which will be filled by co-option.

No special qualifications are required to be a councillor. Training for new councillors is available to help assist with understanding the responsibilities of the role.

If you would like to put yourself forward as a Beckington Parish Councillor please either get in touch with the Clerk or come along to the next meeting of the Parish Council to introduce yourself.

If more people indicate their interest in becoming a Parish Councillor than the number of vacancies available, candidates will be asked to give a short verbal or written statement about why they are interested in the role, and the Parish Council will make their decision by a majority vote.

What do Parish Councillors do?

Beckington Parish Council is made up of 7 voluntary councillors, who meet once a month to discuss and act on issues of importance to the local community.

At the meetings Parish Councillors discuss and act on issues of importance to the local community. The Parish Council sets and monitors how a proportion of local taxes are spent in the Parish, make comment on planning applications in the Parish and consider projects to help maintain, improve or enhance the local area.

Local Government is changing and Parish Councils are seeing an increase in the responsibilities and opportunities to influence decisions made that affect our local community.
