PARISH COUNCIL ELECTIONS MAY 2ND 2019
Woodborough Parish Council is calling on residents, passionate about their community to stand in the local elections in 2019.
What do councillors do?
Councillors are the champions of their community and give residents a voice on the decisions the council makes. Becoming a councillor will allow you to make a real difference in your community by engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs; making decisions on which services and projects the council should take forward; and getting involved locally to ensure the services are meeting your community’s needs.
How long does it take?
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) Local Councillor Census Survey found that councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for council work. This often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking on behalf of the council to other bodies.

In advance of the public meeting on November 26th at 7.30pm, called to present the results of the consultation on parish facilities and the Sam Middup Field, the Parish Council is publishing a draft presentation which contains the detailed results.
When we present on the night, we will use a modified version of this, as this level of detail is not always easy to digest on the spot (particularly some of the charts).
If you have any questions about the results in advance, please contact the Clerk, and she will try to bring answers to the meeting.
The objective of the meeting is to communicate the results of the consultation and to start the debate about what we do next. The Parish Council have made no commitments or decisions and will not present recommendations or cost/funding information.
A public meeting will be held on Monday November 26th, 7.30pm at the Village Hall to present and discuss the results of the consultation on parish facilities/ ideas for Sam Middup Field.
Further details to follow.
Nottinghamshire County Council is leading a consultation on a proposed reorganisation of local government in the county.
The proposal has been widely covered in the local media and in essence would lead to a reduction in the number of councils responsible for services in the county (potentially with just one council responsible for all services outside Nottingham City).
Gedling Borough Council oppose the proposal.
A preliminary document and online consultation can be accessed here.
The deadline for responses is 31st October 2018.
Please can all Village Hall users - whether they use the hall every day or once in a blue moon - take time to read the Emergency Evacuation and Fire Procedures to ensure that everyone is familiar with these procedures in the event of an emergency or fire.
