How are Parish Councillors elected?
Parish Council elections take place every 4 years. The next election will be in 2023.
If there are more councillors being nominated than seats available (ie. more than 13 nominees), an election needs to be held.
For example; the last Parish Council election was on May 2, 2019. An election was not required because all 12 nominations were elected without a contest. An election would have been held if 14 people or more had stood as candidates for the 13-person council.
Burwash Parish Council currently has 1 vacancy on the council.
The Council can co-opt councillors to fill vacancies which arise if seats are left vacant following any election or if a councillor resigns during the term of the council – currently four years. Click here to see the full BPC Co-Option policy.
