Councillor Vacancy

By becoming a parish councillor you become someone your community will look to for help, guidance and support – a community leader with the power to influence decisions for the benefit of the people you serve.

Seeing your community change for the better, as a result of decisions you have helped make, is something that can give you a sense of achievement and pride.

For further details, please contact the Parish Clerk 


To become a Parish Councillor you must:

  • be a UK or Commonwealth citizen
  • be a citizen of the Republic of Ireland
  • be a citizen of another Member state of the European Union
  • be at least 18 years old

To be eligible to become a Parish Councillor for Brixworth, you must also:

  • be an elector of the parish
  • for the whole of the previous 12 months have occupied (as owner or tenant) land or other premises in the parish
  • during the previous 12 months have worked in the parish (as your principal or only place of work)
  • for the whole of the previous 12 months lived in the parish or within three miles of the parish boundary

If you do become a parish councillor you will have to sign up to the Parish Council’s Code of Conduct.


The Parish Council meets once a month for the council meeting, to which members of the public are also invited. Meetings may last two or three hours, depending on what’s on the list of items to discuss. The Parish Council has three committees to deal with Planning, Personnel and Finance. It also has Working Groups to deal with specific project work.

Don’t take our word for it

The best way to find out what it’s like to be a parish councillor is to talk to someone who’s doing it now. Come along to a parish council meeting, speak to one of the councillors and find out what they think of the job. Alternatively you can attend one of our Saturday Surgeries at the community Centre.
