Ockham Parish Councillor Vacancy

Ockham Parish Council currently has a vacancy for a Parish Councillor to be co-opted on to the Parish Council.

We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you have an interest or experience in delivering projects or would like to be involved in highway matters for the Community. Other areas the Parish Council is involved with are on planning matters and climate change. We have secured some funding for an exciting community project and there is an opportunity to be involved from the outset.

To be eligible you need to be:

  • 18 years of age an elector of the parish or
  • Resided or rented in Ockham for the past 12 months or
  • Principal place of work in the parish or
  • Live within three miles of the parish boundary

The Parish Council Meetings are held once a month normally on the first Tuesday of the month in the evening and you would have an opportunity to contribute on matters of local interest on the Agenda. You would also be expected to progress tasks and feedback.

We would be pleased to hear from you if you are interested in becoming a Parish Councillor. Please send a brief resume outlining some background information, the skills you can offer and reason for wanting to become a Parish Councillor to

If you would like to have a chat with someone about this voluntary role then please include your telephone number and the Chair will be in contact or you may wish to attend a Parish Meeting as an observer.
