Elections - May 2019
Elections May 2019
Parish and town councils are led by democratically elected councillors from the local community.
These local councillors decide on what services and projects the council will deliver. As representatives of the first tier of local government, and the closest to their communities, local councillors are best placed to engage with their residents and find out what the real local issues are and how to overcome them.
Local councils run elections to encourage residents who are passionate about their community to stand for election and thus contribute towards what goes on in their community. There are currently 120,000 councillors serving on the 10,000 local councils in England.
Do you, or someone you know, have what it takes to be a local councillor?
Contact your local council to find out more.
Why don’t you stand for your local council and influence what happens in your community.

About the Haxey Parish Council
There are 15 Haxey Parish Council Councillors, who are elected representatives.
Currently, there are 9 Councillors from Westwoodside and 6 from Haxey.
Councillors are not paid and receive no income, so all work done on our Resident’s behalf is completely voluntary.
The Council normally meets on the last Tuesday in each month and there are 12 planned meetings per year.
We deal with large numbers of planning applications and from time to time this may necessitate extra meetings.
At the start of Council meetings 15 minutes is set aside for public participation.
