BECOME A COUNCILLOR


WHAT DO LOCAL COUNCILS DO?

Your local council has overall responsibility for the wellbeing of your local community. Their work falls into three main categories:

•Delivery of services;
•Improve quality of life for residents;
•Give communities a democratic voice.

BECOMING A LOCAL COUNCILLOR


As a local councillor you can become a voice for your community and make real change. Councillors are community leaders and represent the interests of the communities they serve.

Local councillors have three main responsibilities:


•Decision-making;
•Monitoring;
•Getting involved locally.

•a UK or Commonwealth citizen; or be a citizen of the Republic of Ireland; or be a citizen of another Member State of the European Union;

•at least 18 years old;

•an elector of the local council; or in the past 12 months occupied land or other premises in the area the local council serves (as owner or tenant); or work in the area local council serves (as your principal or only place of work); or live within three miles of the local council boundary.
