Becoming a Councillor

Town and Parish Elections are held every four years. The last full election took place in New Romney in May 2019. In between elections, casual vacancies may arise for any number of reasons. Casual vacancies are filled by a by-election, if called, as and when they occur or, if no by-election is called, casual vacancies may then be filled by co-option.

Town and Parish Councillors are elected for a term of four years and must seek re-election at the next full election if they wish to remain in office. Councillors that are elected mid-term as the result of a by-election or are co-opted onto the Council mid-term must also seek re-election at the next full election.

If you are interested in standing as a Town Councillor, please see our Becoming a Councillor leaflet.

Occasionally a casual vacancy may arise due to the resignation of a Councillor during their term of office. For information regarding any current, casual vacancies please see Councillor Vacancies.
