Vacancy for a Parish Councillor


December 2021
Lower Peover Parish Council notice


Following the retirement of Mrs Sally Geake, a vacancy has arisen which will now be filled by co-option.

Parish councillors have a dual role: -

Firstly, to represent the views and concerns of the residents of the parish to the parish council itself and, through it, to the unitary authority. This involves attending meetings of the parish council and corresponding with the parish clerk. Individual councillors do not have, and cannot be given, powers to make decisions on behalf of the parish council. Rather, decisions are made by the Parish Council as a whole.

Secondly, parish councillors play a key role in reporting back to residents on issues affecting the parish i.e., listening and talking to people, including the local elected members of the unitary council This will almost certainly take up more of your time. However, it is important to remember that “rules of behaviour” apply whenever activities of being a parish councillor are being undertaken.

To be able to stand as a candidate you must:

• be at least 18 years old

• be a British citizen, an eligible Commonwealth citizen or a citizen of any member state of the European Union, and

• meet at least one of the following four qualifications:

a. You are, and will continue to be, registered as a local government elector for the parish/community in which you wish to stand.

b. You have occupied as owner or tenant any land or other premises in the parish/community area during the whole of the last 2 months

c. Your main or only place of work during the 12 months must have been in the parish/community area.

d. You have lived in the parish/community area or within three miles of it during the whole of the 12 months

If you would like to be considered, please write setting out why you would like to become a Parish Councillor, to Geoff Parker the Parish Clerk atlowerpeoverparishcouncil@outlook.com

The closing date for application letters is Friday 31st December 2021
