Bradpole Civil Parish

Welcome, this is the Bradpole Parish Council Community Website.

A winter’s scene on the River Asker

Bradpole Parish Council manages this website to enable readers to be kept up to date with developments and issues facing the Civil Parish of Bradpole, its Council, and its residents.

Do you know the difference between a Civil Parish and an Ecclesiastical Parish? Our Parish Council page will explain this in more detail.

Bradpole Parish Council represents the views of local people, negotiates and influences the decisions which directly affect the community and aims to improve the quality of life for everyone living and working in the area.

We maintain this community website as a relevant source of factual information by regular updating.

No Hype, No Misinformation, No Fake News

2019 LOCAL ELECTIONS

Local elections take place on Thursday 2 May 2019.
Do you care about where you live? Are you passionate about your community? If so, you could make a great local councillor. Stand for election and make a local change.

https://www.nalc.gov.uk/our-work/elections

Parish Councillors are the champions of their community and give residents a voice on the decisions the council makes. Becoming a councillor will allow you to make a real difference in your community by engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs; making decisions on which services and projects the council should take forward; and getting involved locally to ensure the services are meeting your community’s needs.

How long does it take?

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) Local Councillor Census Survey found that parish councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for council work. This often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking on behalf of the council to other bodies.

County Councillors

Dorset Council have a website page dedicated to those Dorset residents who may be interested in representing their ward on the new Dorset Council. Information is available at: https://www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/councillors-committees-elections/councillors/become-a-local-councillor.aspx
