Chiseldon Parish Council is comprised of 15 councillors that have either been elected or co-opted. Currently, our councillors consist of business owners, business people, and local people who have retired and can bring their experience and skills to the council.
Councillors volunteer their time in order to help and have a say in their local community. None receive any payment or allowance other than reimbursement of expenses incurred in the line of duty. The only paid official is the Parish Clerk, which a legally required post.
If a position on the council or committee is contested, an election decided by the parish constituents takes place. Councillors can serve a maximum of 5 years before requiring to be re-appointed. In order to become a councillor, you must be at least 18 years old and a UK, commonwealth and/or EU citizen.
