How to Become a Parish Councillor
Are you passionate about making a difference to your local community of Stoke sub Hamdon? If the answer is yes why not think about standing as a Parish Councillor? We are a very proactive council and councillors are expected to take an active part in working groups and the various council led projects as well as being prepared to submit and read written reports prior to each meeting.
Parish Council Elections
Parish Council elections are held every four years and the next one is due in May 2022. This has been brought forward a year to align with the Somerset Unitary Council elections. The subsequent elections will take place five years later in 2027.
There are 11 Councillor seats available in total; 10 in the Hamdon Ward and 1 in the St Michael Ward. An election will be held if more candidates come forward than there are seats.
