Could you be a parish councillor?

Upton Magna Parish Councillor currently has a vacancy. Could you fill it? 

Parish councils are the most local tier of government. Everything the parish council does is focused on your local area. Parish councillors are volunteers who give up a little of their time to support and represent their community. 

Why be a councillor? 

  • Give something back 
  • Tackle local issues and help your community to thrive 
  • Use your skills and develop new ones 
  • Speak up for people like you

Do I qualify?  If you are: 

  • A British or a citizen of the Commonwealth or European Union 
  • At least 18 years old 
  • Registered to vote in the area or have lived, worked, or owned property there for at least 12 months before an election 

then you will probably be eligible for co-option. 

What does it involve?  

Upton Magna Parish Council meets every other month on a Thursday evening. Some other meetings may happen from time to time. Free training is available and you will be supported by the existing councillors and the Clerk.  

How do I apply?  

Contact the Clerk on or 01691 622093 for an application form.
