Would you be interested in becoming a Town Councillor?

Want to help your local community?  Passionate about where you live?  Are you interested in how your Town Council operates?

Town Councillors are people elected to the Town Council to represent their local community – you do not need to be a member of a political party. We need all different types of people so that the Town Council reflects the community it serves, so whatever your age, background or skills you could be the perfect person, you just need some time, enthusiasm and commitment. Callington Town Council meet three times a month on the first, third and fourth Tuesday, in the evenings. There are four committees, Planning, Outside Services, Town Hall and Finance and General Purposes. A Full Council meeting is held on the fourth Tuesday every month.

 

If you are interested, please contact the Town Clerk on 01579 384039 or

email: clerk@callington-tc.gov.uk.

Now is the time for detail to be addressed and there will be plenty of opportunity to voice your opinions; speak to your local town councillors or members of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee.
