Parish Council Vacancies

Home » Newsroom » Parish Council
Parish Plan

The Parish Council now has two unfilled vacancies leaving only 9 councillors out of the 11 that make up a full complement. There has been one vacancy since the election over a year ago, while the other has recently arisen following the resignation of Councillor Larry Holmes.

The lack of the full number of Councillors effects the smooth working of the Council by increasing workloads on remaining members. It also reduces the strength of the Parish voice in important discussions affecting the lives of all. At the current time there are pressures for residential development on two areas of village land, the Neighbourhood Plan is being drafted, and there is a possible move to create a gypsy site in the village. With so much going on in the Parish, now is the time for a full complement of councillors to reflect on the future of the Parish and to listen to and give voice to local concerns. These concerns can then be voiced with some strength to the Borough Council.

To be eligible you need to have

a. been an elector in the Parish for at least 12 months and either occupied or owned/rented premises in the Parish
b. resided within three miles of the boundary of the Parish
c. had your principal or only place of work in the Parish.

If you feel that you would like to get involved at this most interesting time then please do contact the Parish Clerk, Mike Hassall, on 01829 741075 or by email on miketarvinparish@aol.com

If you would like to find out more informally then do contact any of the present Councillors who will be happy to talk to you about their role and what you might expect if you consider stepping forward. Councillors contact details can be found in any copy of Tarvin Times. If you haven't kept your copy they are all on the Parish Council website.
