Kirton Parish Council

Council Members

Role of a Councillor

A councillor is a member of the council and is normally elected for a term of four years.

People of any political or religious persuasion are eligible to become a councillor, although their personal views should not extend into their parish council work.

They are elected to represent the interests of the local community as a whole and promote a harmonious local environment. The number of elected councillors depends on the size of the area.

Local councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact for anyone concerned with a community issue. They are democratically elected local authorities and exist in England, Wales and Scotland. Local councils are made up of locally elected councillors. They are legally obliged to hold at least one meeting a year. In Kirton we meet on the first Tuesday of every month to discuss council business and hear from local residents. In addition to this, any committees or sub-committees dealing with specific subjects must also hold regular open sessions, at which members of the public can speak. Borough councillors regularly attend parish meetings to report back to the district on developments at parish level.

Being a Parish Councillor can be an interesting and rewarding experience and definitely pays a significant part in enhancing the local community.
