There are 55 seats available to be filled in the local elections on 4th May 2017, each a chance to have a big impact in the local community and get involved in the huge range of services provided by the Council.
Applications from people from different kinds of backgrounds are welcome; you don't have to belong to a political party or have previous experience. People who can bring their life experiences into the council and bring the voice of the local community into its policy making and decision processes are sought.
In return for their work with local communities and attending meetings and events, councillors will be given allowances, provided with IT equipment and offered training to help them in their role.
The deadline for nomination papers for the County Council election is on 4th April 2017.
