Role of a Councillor

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, although their personal views should not extend into their parish council work.

Councillors are elected to represent the interests of the local community as a whole and promote a harmonious local environment. The number of elected councillors depends on the size of the area.  Ludgvan Parish Council has twelve members.

Local councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact for anyone concerned with a community issue. They are democratically elected local authorities and exist in England, Wales and Scotland. The term ‘local council’ is synonymous with ‘parish council’, ‘town council’ and ‘community council’.

Local councils are made up of locally elected councillors. They are legally obliged to hold at least one meeting a year. Most meet on a six-weekly or monthly cycle (Ludgvan PC meets on the second Wednesday in each month) to discuss council business and hear from local residents. In addition to this, any committees or sub-committees dealing with specific subjects must also hold regular open sessions, at which members of the public can speak.

Ludgvan Parish Council Committee Membership List

County, unitary and metropolitan councillors are also invited to attend parish meetings when the parish council feels it is appropriate, and they have a standing invitation to attend and report at the annual meeting.
Being a Parish Councillor can be both an interesting and rewarding experience.  When, from time to time, a vacancy arises it will be advertised in the local press.
