Town Councillors

Town Councillors give their time unpaid for the benefit of the community as a whole and have voluntarily been elected to office or have been co-opted.

Councillors are elected for a 4 year term. All Councillors stand for re-election every four years. Elections were last held in May 2015. Forthcoming elections will be held in 2019 and 2023.

If a Councillor stands down during the four year term a vacancy will be created. This will be duly notified and electors have the opportunity to call for an open election to find a new member for the Council. If no election is called the current Councillors are free to co-opt a new member to the Council for the remainder of the term. Vacancies for co-option are advertised as they arise.
