Edgmond Parish Councillors are elected for a four-year term of office. Should a vacancy occur mid-term, and no election is called by residents of the Parish, the Parish Council can co-opt to fill this vacancy. Recent vacancies have resulted in one such co-option and we welcomed Keith Arbuthnot onto the Council in early November. There is currently (November 2017) still one vacancy on the Council. We have one other person who has expressed an interest in joining us and we hope that the vacancy will be filled early in 2018. If anyone else is interested in being co-opted click here for more information.
Each Parish Councillor, at the time of their election or co-option reads and signs a Declaration of Acceptance of Office and completes a Register of Interest.
