What does a Parish Councillor do? A Parish Councillor is a member of the Parish Council. They are usually elected for a term of 4 years but they can also be co-opted onto the Parish Council if a vacancy arises mid term or seats remain unfilled after an Election. Councillors are elected to represent the views of the Community and to consider the needs of the local environment. They are the first point of contact for anyone in the village with a Community issue and they can attend the bi-monthly Parish
Council meetings to discuss Council business and to hear from members of the Public. Councillors must abide by a Code of Conduct and declare any Pecuniary (Financial) Interests they may have in the Parish and this information is then held on a Register by Breckland District Council. Many Councillors feel their role is a rewarding form of Public Service.
Breckland are seeking the views of residents on their proposal to adopt the Local Validation List. More information on this subject can be viewed here.
