Become a parish councillor

Published: 01 February 2023

All of Westbourne's nine parish councillor places will be available at the election.

Being a councillor is all about giving back to the community by bringing your energy, enthusiasm and ideas. 

Councillors make a huge difference to the quality of life of local people and how local matters are dealt with. You would support residents with issues, represent the views of local people to help Westbourne get the right services and shape plans by driving new ideas. 

We need people from all backgrounds to represent our community. Training is available and you do not need any previous experience or qualifications. You would gain new stills and knowledge, and work with a range of people, community groups and organisations. 

More information is available about being a parish councillor and the role of the Parish Council.
