Become a Councillor (12 Jul 2013)
Becoming a councillor is an extremely rewarding experience. It gives you the opportunity to help your local community and be part of a dedicated team providing key services for your area.
Being a councillor is a great way to gain political experience and useful skills in public speaking, debating and problem solving.
New councillors are good news. They mean fresh ideas and fresh enthusiasm, and that will be good for your council.
To be eligible you must be:
A British subject or a citizen of the Irish Republic or the EU and resident in the UK.
At least eighteen years old on the day you are nominated.
Either on the electoral register for the council area in which you are seeking election, or have lived or worked in that council area for at least the last twelve months.
