West Felton Parish Council

PARISH COUNCIL VACANCIES

There are currently three vacancies on the Parish Council. As these vacancies have arisen due to unfilled seats following the May 2021 the council must seek to fill them by process of co-option whereby current Members of the council appoint new Members. If you are interested in becoming a councillor then please contact the Parish Clerk who will explain the co-option process and answer any questions that you may have about what is involved in being a councillor. Please note that you do not need any experience as a councillor as full training will be given. Applications would be welcome from a broad range of people across the community.
