Thinking about standing for election?

Conservative councillors are at the heart of our Party’s campaigners across Britain, our local councillors show how Conservatives earn people’s trust to deliver high quality, value-for-money public services.

By becoming a councillor, you really can make a difference for the people who elect you, and the places you represent you can help transform your neighbourhood, and improve the lives of its residents.

You can help improve local public services, enabling them to meet or exceed ever-changing public expectations.

You will have the chance to develop and hone a wide range of your own skills; critical analysis and problem solving; public speaking and debating; diplomacy and consensus-building.

You will be able to gain all the political experience you wish.

We have opportunities at Parish and District levels.
