 COUNCILLOR VACANCIES

Following the recent Town elections there are still
2 vacancies on the Town Council.

The Town Council would like to hear from anyone who might wish to be co-opted (i.e. become a councillor without having to standing for public election).

Applications will need to be received by Tuesday 2nd June. 

If you are interested in applying for one of the vacancies please register an “Expression of Interest” in writing or by e-mail to:Mr Lee Jakeman Town Clerk c/o The Guildhall. townclerk@newportsaloptowncouncil.co.uk

Applications will need to be received by Tuesday 2nd June in order that it can be considered by members in time for a decision to be made at the Town Council meeting scheduled for Wed 10 June. 

There is not set criteria for the format of an expression of interest however, it would benefit from including your full postal address and a contact telephone number and an outline of what you have to offer and why you wish to stand.   There is no ideal type of councillor and there are great benefits in having a diverse group of individuals working towards common aims.  Why not take the opportunity of contacting one of the current councillors to find out what you might be letting yourself in for.  

Further information, along with the criteria for qualification of the post, is available and can be explained by contacting the Guildhall, or by visiting the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) website:   http://www.nalc.gov.uk/about-local-councils which provides a broad description of a Town/Parish Council and role Councillors play in Local Democracy.
