There is a vacancy on the Parish Council and a great opportunity to become involved in local decision making
The Parish Council has a vacancy and is looking to co-opt a new councillor to represent your community.
If you are interested in becoming actively involved in making decisions and influencing how your local services are run then this is an opportunity to join a dedicated and friendly Council which strives to make Knowstone a great place to live.
The Council’s responsibilities include (among other aspects):
Footpaths/Beaples Stones maintenance
Local emergency planning
The Council also reviews and comment on all planning applications within the Parish, and will lobby on behalf of residents on any other matter affecting the parish.
The Council has its own budget and sets its own Council Tax each year.
The Council meets monthly (except in December) on the fourth Tuesday at 7.30 p.m. in the Parish Hall where items are discussed and decisions made. Councillors are expected to attend on a regular basis.
You do not need to belong to any political party or have any previous experience as training and support will be provided. The most important criteria are enthusiasm and a willingness to listen to and represent your community.
If you would like to be considered for co-option on to the Council please contact the Parish Clerk, Wendy Sweet, for further information on 01398 341692, email email@example.com
