Councillors

The Parish has 7 Councillors. All Councillors serve a four year term, and are normally elected in a single election. The next election is in May 2019.

 

If a vacancy occurs during the four years it can be filled either by a by-election if there is more than one candidate and 10 electors demand a poll, or by co-option. Co-option is where one or more candidates put their name forward to the council. If there is more than one person standing for co-option then a secret ballot is held by existing Councillors. Councillors give their time voluntarily and do not get paid a salary or expenses.

 

The Parish Council is supported by a Parish Clerk who services Council meetings and carries out instructions of the Council made at each meeting. The Clerk also has responsibility for maintaining the Council’s finances including a Cash Book, checking invoices, preparing cheques for payment and reconciling monthly bank statements. The Clerk is the only person who is paid by the council.
