UPLYME Parish Council is encouraging potential new members to stand for election this May.
There are many reasons why people stand for election as a parish councillor. Often it is because they want:
- To speak on behalf of their local community and to help local people and represent their needs and concerns
- To pursue their political beliefs and aspirations
- To offer their personal or professional skills to assist the work of the council
Councillors are elected for four -year terms of office and if you are interested in becoming a parish councillor, you can apply for a Nomination Pack which needs to be delivered back by hand by the deadline to the East Devon District Council offices at Blackdown House, Honiton, at the latest time of 4pm Wednesday, April 3.
Electoral services opening hours are Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm and can be contacted on 01395 517402 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like more information on becoming a parish councillor in Uplyme, contact parish clerk Ricky Neave on 07413 947 067.
