Could you be a parish councillor?

If you are interested in your community and what can be done to improve life for the residents of Udimore, then you may want to consider becoming a parish councillor

This page explains how you can find out more.

Councillors normally serve for a four year period following a May election. The last election was in May 2019.

Vacancies may arise at other times when an existing councillor resigns. These are called casual vacancies and they are always advertised on parish notice boards and this website. Casual vacancies may be filled by a by-election or by co-option.

The election process is administered by Rother District Council. They have an "Electoral Services" department which has responsibility to issue and receive nomination forms, and to organise the election and notify the results.

If you want to know more about the work of a councillor please contact one of  your councillors. Their contact details can be found on this website.

For more general information go the website for the National Association of Local Councils. Here is the link to their home page. Choose "toolkits" from the left hand menu, and then select "Become a councillor"
