How are Parish Councillors elected?

Parish Council elections take place every 4 years.
If there are more councillors being nominated than seats available (ie. more than 7 nominees), an election needs to be held.
For example; In 2023, an election was not required because all nominations were elected without a contest. An election would have been held if 8 people or more had stood as candidates for the 7-person council.
For further information please contact the Clerk on 01424 830331 or email [email protected] .

Co-Opting Councillors

The Council can co-opt councillors to fill vacancies which arise if seats are left vacant following any election or if a councillor resigns during the term of the council – currently four years.
