How to become a Councillor

If you have an active interest in and a concern for Coleford, are enthusiastic and willing to learn, why not represent local people and help make the decisions of the Town Council by becoming a Councillor?

Don’t worry about knowing very little about Council work – this will quickly increase with experience.

The Town Council has a monthly evening meeting and, if you have an interest in the work of a sub-committee then you would need to attend a further monthly meeting.

Councillors are not paid and have to declare an interest in a matter if they have a financial or substantial personal interest in it. Expenses for travel and subsistence are paid.

So, if you are still interested in doing more for your community, want to spend your time productively in thinking, listening and acting locally then talk to a Town Councillor or ring the Town Council office for more information.
