Become a Councillor

Are you a Conservative living in the South Ribble Association area who wants to improve our community? If so, you are an ideal candidate to become a local Conservative councillor.

Becoming a councillor is a uniquely rewarding experience. It gives you the opportunity to help your local community and be part of a dedicated local team providing key services for your area. Being a councillor is also a great way to gain political experience and useful skills in public speaking, debating and problem solving.

Serving councillors are a broad mix of people, everyday people form everyday backgrounds joined by a passion for their local community.

New councillors are good news, it provides fresh ideas and fresh enthusiasm, and that will be good for your council and your local area.

- A British subject or a citizen of the Irish Republic or the EU and resident in the UK;

- At least eighteen years old on the day you are nominated;

- Either on the electoral register for the council area in which you are seeking election, or have lived or worked in that council area for at least the last twelve months;
