Step up and become a Parish Councillor.
Ruspidge & Soudley Parish Council currently has three Councillor vacancies for Ruspidge (West).
What do councillors do? Local councillors are the champions of their community who invest time in local projects and issues to the benefit of residents and the neighbourhood.
How could I contribute?
As a Councillor representing your community, you will help to keep it a great place to live and work.
Councillors individually, can and should be very different in their skills base, experience and work status, all of which contribute to a good and balanced representation of the parish. The ability to take the initiative, be creative and have time to give to the role are all very important aspects of being a good Councillor.
What is the level of commitment?
A Councillor Census Survey found that councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for council work. Council work often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking to local groups and bodies on behalf of the council.
