Be a Parish Councillor!

We currently have vacancies on the Brixworth Parish Council.

This is a rewarding volunteer role within the community and by contributing just a few hours per month you can be involved in the local decision-making process.

The Parish Council meets monthly in the Community Centre & Library (last Thursday of the month) and we have a friendly team of Councillors who work together for the benefit of Brixworth.

Parish Councillors decide which activities to support, where locally raised money should be spent, what services should be delivered and ensure that the Council operates within its powers. The Parish Council comments on local planning applications (meets every 3 weeks) and it is also the trustee for the Community Centre.

Training, development and support is offered to new Councillors. The meetings are jargon-free and usually finish by 9.30pm.

This is a great opportunity to volunteer and get involved. Younger people could also reap the benefit of having community involvement on their CV!

Applicants should be on the electoral register and be over 18 years old. You must have lived in the Parish, owned land, or worked in the Parish for at least 12 months.

Interested? Please access the form at  https://www.brixworthparishcouncil.gov.uk/forms/ and return it completed to the Parish Clerk via email at parish.clerk@brixworthparishcouncil.gov.uk

The closing date for written applications is Monday 30th September 2019.
