Are you interested in becoming a Parish Councillor? See below for more details

Foxton Parish Council has only 5 councillors at the moment when there should be 10.

Becoming a parish councillor is a way of giving something positive back to your community.

If you are interested in becoming a councillor, and would like to make a difference by influencing decisions that affect your community, please contact Foxton’s parish clerk for more information by email clerk@foxtonparishcouncil.gov.uk or tel 01763 838430

The Parish Council meets on the first Monday of the month at 7.30pm for approximately two hours and council meetings are open to the public. A parish, town or community council is the closest level of local government to the community. The Parish Council is a local authority in its own right that represents and makes decisions on behalf of its parish and provides services for them.

Councillors are elected for a 4-year term, or in the case of a casual vacancy can be co-opted, and are unpaid for their time. A Parish Councillor’s time commitment can average 4-6 hours per week and may sometimes be more or less than this. Time commitment varies throughout the year and can depend on role responsibilities; however other Councillors will be available to share the workload throughout the term of office.

If you are interested in finding out more or have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in contact. Thank you
