Lisvane Community Council Vacancies

LISVANE COMMUNITY COUNCIL

Lisvane Community Council currently has two vacancies for Councillors, which will be filled through the process of co-option. Co-opted Councillors have the same rights and responsibilities as those Councillors who obtain office through election. The position of Community Councillor does not attract any remuneration. Councillors are expected to attend the monthly meetings of the Council and also to serve on a number of Committees. The role is varied and enables local people to use their skills and experience to enhance the work undertaken by the Council for the benefit of the community.

The Council wishes to invite interested and eligible people to submit their applications for the role of Councillor by way of a letter outlining the following:

· the contribution you believe you could make to the work of the Council;

· the personal qualities that you would bring to the role;

· your availability for attending meetings; and

· confirmation that you meet the criteria for eligibility set out in Section 79 of the Local Government Act 1972 (the 1972 Act) and are not disqualified from being a member under Section 80 of the 1972 Act.
