Who can be a Town Councillor?


Councillors are elected to the local council to represent their local community, so they must either live or work in the area. Becoming a councillor is both a rewarding and privileged form of public service. You will be in a position to make a difference to the quality of other people’s daily lives and prospects.

Being an effective councillor requires both commitment and hard work. Councillors have to balance the needs and interests of residents and the council. These will all make legitimate demands on a councillor’s time, on top of the demands and needs of their personal and professional lives.
