Parish Council Elections 2nd May 2019

Be a councillor

Are you passionate about your local area? What do you think matters to local people and are you ready to help make a difference to the quality of life in your community?

If your answer to these questions is “yes” you might just want to think about standing for office on either Teignbridge District Council, or to your local Town or Parish Council.

Being a councillor does require commitment and hard work, but it can also be very rewarding.

Standing for election 

Standing for election is a relatively simple process. You will need to submit a nomination paper to the Returning Officer and also get a number of people living within your community to support you. For the District Council you need 10 supporters and for Town and Parish Councils you need just two supporters.  Anyone who agrees to support your candidacy must be willing to sign your nomination and they also need to be registered electors who are entitled to vote for you.

There are some qualifications you have to meet such as a minimum age and your nationality. Find out more about how to become a District or Town/Parish councillor

Devon AlertRed Telephone

Devon and Cornwall Alert is a free community messaging system run by Devon and Cornwall Police to inform members of the public about crimes and incidents affecting their local area. 

Recorded messages are sent by telephone, email or text message to individuals or groups/businesses.

It is a two-way messaging system which helps us to connect with our communities; it tells people what is happening in their area and allows them to respond directly with any information.

The system is designed to allow people who register to choose the type of information they would like to receive concerning crime and anti-social behaviour, witness appeals, crime prevention, community events and local good news.
