Do you want to be a councillor? Advice evening but you must register by 28 February 2014

23 Feb

If you are, you might want to come along to an event run by EDDC on Thursday 13 March, from 6-9pm at the Knowle.  This information is copied from a January 2014 entry from claire-wright.org

In May 2015, the next general election will take place alongside local elections – for EDDC – and if more people stand than there are seats – for town and parish councils also.

If not enough people stand for election, or the same number as there are seats, candidates will be automatically elected.

EDDC’s make-up is 59 councillors – 42 conservative, 7 independent and 10 libdem.

If you are interested in attending the event, which will explore the role of councillors, local government and its links with parliament, please contact officers on

01395 517541 by

Friday 28 February.
