2019 LOCAL ELECTIONS

NOTICE OF ELECTION
Candidate nomination papers now available HERE

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.

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

Community groups form the backbone of our local society and there are many possible sources of funding available to these groups.

Bradpole Parish Council is keen to encourage and advise on the formation of such groups within the Community.
