Two Councillor Vacancies

Ludgvan Parish Council

Parish Councillor Vacancies

There are currently two vacancies on Ludgvan Parish Council, one in the Crowlas Ward and one in the Lelant Ward.

The council will fill these vacancies by co-option, which is a process where the council considers applications from interested people and can then select someone to fill the seat.

We need people from all backgrounds and experiences to put themselves forward for this role. The role of a Parish Councillor is to represent the interests of the whole community and to take an active role in the decision-making process. You don’t need any specific experience or qualifications, bring your life experiences, everyday skills and commitment to people and the local community.

Applications should be made in writing to Louise Clifton, Parish Clerk, by email to: clerk@ludgvan.org.uk  The application form is available online at: https://www.ludgvan.org/application-form-for-co-option-onto-the-parish-council/  Application forms should be submitted by midday, Wednesday 5 June 2024.

The Parish Council will consider all applications at its meeting on Wednesday 12 June 2024. Applicants will have the opportunity to give a short introduction about themselves if they wish to.

Ludgvan Parish Council meetings are currently held at 6.45pm on the second Wednesday of each month. Find out more about the work of the council on the website: www.ludgvan.org
