Your Council Needs You

Do you want to make a difference to your community? Are you interested in becoming a Town Councillor? Parish and Town Councils have legal powers to take action if they chose to do so and can play a vital role in representing the interests of their local community.


Your Council Needs You


Councils need Councillors with a broad range of skills and experience, not necessarily with a high standard of education or a profession. Skills gained through raising a family, volunteering or being active in the community can be just as valuable.


Good communication and organisational skills, the ability to work as part of a team and an ability to engage with the local community are important skills for a Councillor.


You can be a Councillor as long as you are:

  • British or a citizen of the Commonwealth or the European Union.

  • At least 18 years old.

  • Registered to vote in the area or have lived, worked or owned property there for at least 12 months before an election.

For further information on this site go to Town Council – Your Council – Annual Report/What We Provide. If you are interested in standing for election in May contact Steven Blyth at Bolton Elections Office on 01204 331247 or visit www.bolton.gov.uk
