Ampney Crucis Latest News
Ampney Crucis Parish Council is calling on parish residents who value and are passionate about our community to stand in the local elections in May, 2019.
What do parish councillors do?
Parish councillors are the champions of their community and give residents a voice on the decisions the council makes.
Becoming a councillor will allow you to make a real difference in your community by engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs; making decisions on which services and projects the council should take forward; and getting involved locally to ensure the services are meeting your community’s needs.
How long does it take?
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) Local Councillor Census Survey found that councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for council work. This often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking on behalf of the council to other bodies.
Can I stand?
There are only a few rules to stand for election:
- You must live in the Civil Parish of Ampney Crucis.
- You must also be 18 years of age or older, and be a British citizen, or a citizen of the Commonwealth, or the European Union.
