Stone Parish Council

Be a councillor

The role of a councillor is very varied and involves contributing to decisions on local policies and issues affecting residents. Council and committee meetings are held approximately once a month and, on average, being a councillor requires around 10 hour’s commitment per month.

Being a councillor is a fantastic way to get involved in real grass roots democracy and influence local services and facilities for the benefit of the community. The Council is involved with some exciting projects including recent construction of Stone Pavilion, a plethora of community events including the annual Stone Fete, and development of local facilities for use by the community.

In order to be eligible, potential councillors must fulfil eligibility criteria: they must be a British or Commonwealth citizen, over 21 and on the Electoral Roll. In addition he/she must either have lived or worked in or within three miles of the parish.
