Become a Parish Councillor for Bearley

Are you passionate about your community, here in Bearley? Do you want to help make a long-lasting change? Do you have innovative ideas? Do you have concerns about a specific issue and want to do something about it?

Bearley Parish Council has casual vacancies,  so if you answered yes to any of the questions above then why not consider this opportunity? We need people from all backgrounds and experiences, who reflect their community.

No experience necessary just a passion for village life.

You will be surprised how interesting and rewarding it will be, and if you’re still wavering, here are some of the reasons why you might be thinking it’s not for you:

Reason 1:
“I’m not a politician, so i don’t think this opportunity is appropriate for me”
The Parish Council is about making practical, common sense decisions for the benefit of the community. It is absolutely not about scoring political points.

Reason 2:
“I’m too busy. This will take up all my spare time”
You can put as much or as little time as you can spare. A couple of hours a week is normally quite enough. Bearley Parish Council Meetings are every two months.

Reason 3:
“What difference can the Parish Council make anyway?”
Without the Parish Council, we probably wouldn’t have the 30mph speed limit on Snitterfield Road, the pedestrian refuge on the Birmingham Road, a thriving village hall and sports pitches, a park, maintained green spaces.

Parish Councils serve to be the voice of the community, which is only possible if those voices are heard and shared.

Interested? Then don’t hesitate to speak to one of the Parish Councillors or our Clerk to find out more and what’s involved.

Vacancies are open for application and until Thursday 11 January 2024
