Parish Council Elections
Every 4 years the existing members stand down on Parish Councils. Ashford Borough Council produce nomination forms that have to be completed within a certain time period, those that wish to stand as a Parish Councillor complete these forms and they are returned to Ashford Borough Council. If there are more people wishing to become a Parish Councillor than there are seats then an election is held. The next time this process takes place will be in April/May 2019. At the first meeting of the new Parish Council a Chairman is elected. After this the Chairman is elected annually at the Parish Council’s AGM. So that members of the public are aware of what is occurring Ashford Borough Council advertise the process and so do the Parish Council.
