There are some 70,000 parish councillors in England and Wales. Parish councillors
get no financial reward for what they do, but are, nevertheless, accountable
to local people for things that happen locally.
Elections take place to elect councillors every 4 years. The next election will take place in May 2015. Councillors can also be co-opted; this is where the council chooses
who will fill the vacant seats if there are not enough candidates at election
time. In addition, if a vacancy occurs between elections, the council must
find out if the electors want an election before they can co-opt.
Currently there are three vacant seats on the council.
