Are You Interested In Becoming A Councillor?

10 May 2020

A councillor is a member of the council and is normally elected for a term of four years.  People of any political or religious persuasion are eligible to become a councillor for Drayton, although their personal, political views should not extend into their parish council work.

Becoming a parish councillor is a rewarding and valued form of public service. All councillors contribute to the work of the Parish Council by:

  • Having a say about the things they care about

  • Putting forward ideas for better services

  • Responding to the needs and views of parishioners

  • Seeking the best outcome to local issues

  • Getting involved in decision making

  • Helping to make Drayton a better place to live!

We normally meet on the first Thursday of every month. Meetings commence at 7 pm lasting around 2 hours at The Pavilion, King George V Playing Field (KGV), although these are currently only taking place virtually using Zoom. Councillors are expected to attend meetings on a regular basis.

There are 5 vacancies on the Parish Council at present. If you're interested, contact the clerk to find out more.
