This is a rewarding volunteer role within the community and by contributing just a few hours per month you can be involved in the local decision-making process. The Parish Council meets monthly in the Village Hall (last Thursday of the month) and we have a friendly team of Councillors who work together for the benefit of Brixworth.
Parish Councillors decide which activities to support, where locally raised money should be spent, what services should be delivered and ensure that the Council operates within its powers. The Parish Council comments on local planning applications and it is also the sole trustee for the Community Centre.
Training, development and support is offered to new Councillors. The meetings are jargon-free and usually finish by 9.30pm.
This is a great opportunity to volunteer and get involved. Younger people could also reap the benefit of having community involvement on their CV!
Applicants should be on the electoral register and be over 18 years old. You must have lived in the Parish, owned land, or worked in the Parish for at least 12 months.
