The next Parish Council election will be held on the same day as the General Election, Thursday 7th May 2015.
11 Councillors will need to be elected to represent what will be a new Tarvin Parish Council.

Existing Councillors can be re-elected but a number have already indicated that they will not will be standing again.
If you are interested in how your area is looked after and how it develops then why not consider becoming a Councillor?
The positions are voluntary and take up as much time as you want to give.

The minimum commitment is to attend the monthly Parish Council meeting held on a Monday evening (normally the fourth Monday evening in the month). Councillors can also serve as members of a committee or working group between meetings should they wish to do so.

Councillors represent the views and concerns of the residents of the Parish to the Parish Council and, through it, to the Borough Council.
