Parish Council Casual Vacancy


Saughall and Shotwick Park Parish Council is calling on residents, passionate about their community to stand as a Councillor. There is currently a vacant seat on the Council.

What do Councillors do?

Councillors are the champions of their community and give residents a voice on the decisions the Council makes. Becoming a Councillor will allow you to make a real difference in your community and improve quality of life by engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs; making decisions on which services and projects the Council should take forward; and getting involved locally to ensure the services are meeting your community’s needs.

How much time out of my day will it take?

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) Local Councillor Census Survey found that Councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for Council work. This often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking on behalf of the Council to other bodies. This is an unpaid position.

Can I stand?

You must be over 18 and meet one of the following criteria:

  • You are registered as a local government elector for your area, or
  • You have lived in the area for at least 12 months, or
  • Your main or only place of work has been in the area for at least 12 months.

If you would like to be considered by the Council for co-option, please complete an application form and send it to the Clerk. The deadline for return of the Co-option Application Form (click to download form)

is Monday, 28 May 2024.
