Tarvin Parish Council Vacancy

Home » Newsroom » Tarvin Parish Council Vacancy
Parish Plan

At the Parish Council meeting on Monday, 13th May, it was confirmed that there is one vacancy following the election held earlier in the month. Council would therefore like to co-opt someone to fill this position.

If you are interested in how your Parish 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 are prepared to give. The commitment is at least to attend the monthly Parish Council meeting normally held on a Monday evening. Councillors represent the views and concerns of the residents of the Parish to the Parish Council and, through it, to the Borough Council.

You must be over 18 and qualify under one of the provisions of Section 79 of the Local Government Act 1972 below:
1. Be on the Electoral Register for the Parish, or
2. Have owned or rented land in the Parish for 12 months, or
3. Have worked in the Parish for 12 months, or
4. Have lived in the Parish or within 3 miles thereof during the whole of the 12 months preceding appointment.

If you think that you would enjoy being a Councillor and wish to put yourself forward for co-option onto the Council please let the Parish Clerk know and also provide him with some information regarding yourself and, for example, whether you have any qualification that would benefit the Council or any particular interests that would be of benefit to the Council. The written document can be as short or long as you wish. Applications should reach the Clerk by 22nd June and will be considered at the Council meeting on 24th June. Contact details for the Clerk are E-mail Clerk@tarvinparishcouncil.org.uk and phone 01829 741075
