Councillor Vacancies Update

Published: 11 June 2019

Bishton Community Council has TWO casual vacancies in the Office of Councillor for the Bishton Community Council and we intend to co-opt to fill the vacancies.

Co-opted Councillors have the same rights and responsibilities as those Councillors who obtain office through election. You will be expected to attend monthly meetings of the Council and also to serve on a number of Committees which meet as and when required.

As a Community Council, we have a powerful voice to represent local people. The role of Councillor is varied and enables local people to use their skills and experience to enhance the work undertaken by the Council. This is therefore an ideal opportunity for you to play a role in representing the interests of your community and improving the quality of life for local people. Applications are therefore being sought from members of the public who are interested in this opportunity. The following link will give you details on how to apply.

The closing date for applications is Saturday 31st August 2019. The Council will consider all applications at the September 4th 2019 Monthly Meeting. Applicants will be notified of the outcome once a decision has been made.
