Parish Councillor Vacancy

Posted: Thu, 12 Sep 2019 11:25 by Laura Storey

Would you like to make a difference to your local community?

We currently have one PARISH COUNCILLOR VACANCY that we are looking to fill by co-option. We invite anyone who is interested in being considered to notify the clerk via e-mail or post. In particular we would like to hear of any specific skills or interests that you believe would benefit our group. If you would like an informal discussion with any member of the Parish Council please do not hesitate to contact me. More »

The position is unpaid and includes approximately 11 meetings a year, depending on the level of involvement. You would be required to demonstrate all the standards of behaviour that are reasonable to expect of someone in public service.

What we can offer is the chance to work with a varied group of people in a non-political atmosphere, the opportunity to practise your skills outside your normal home or business context, an insight into the workings of local government, and above all the potential to make life in Brailsford & Ednaston better in some way.

A Parish Councillor must be:

  • a British citizen, or a citizen of the Commonwealth or the European Union, and
  • 18 years or older on the day you become nominated for election
  • for the whole of the 12 months prior to nomination he/she must:
    • have been an elector of the parish and either occupied or owned/rented premises in the parish, or
    • resided within 3 miles of the boundary of the parish, or
    • had his/her principal or only place of work in that area

You cannot stand for election if you:

  • are the subject of a bankruptcy restriction order or interim order
  • have, within five years before the day of the election, been convicted in the United Kingdom of any offence and have had a prison sentence (whether suspended or not) for a period of over three months without the option of a fine

We look forward to hearing from you. » Less

ATTENTION Residents and Watch members in the Safer Neighbourhood Team Areas of Ashbourne, Hulland/ Brailsford, Marston /Clifton and Tissington/Carsington,

For those not familiar with the area, Wyaston is about 2½miles due South of Ashbourne off the A515. Enter the village hall postcode DE6 2DR into your Sat. Nav. but be advised that this will actually take you past the hall further into the village! Approaching from the direction of Ashbourne, the hall is approx 100 metres from The Shire Horse public house.There is off street parking.

This will be an excellent opportunity to meet your Safer Neighbourhood staff and to learn about the Derbyshire Rural Crime Team and how they are working to protect our lovely countryside. The demonstration of the Police Drones should be particularly interesting.
Don't miss it!
