Be the voice of your community as we look at topics facing both local and central government!
If you are between 13 and 24 years of age apply to be a Youth Councillor by answering the below questions. This will enable us to make an informed decision around who would be most suitable around our Youth Council table for 2022 and beyond. Diversity is really important to us as we work towards modern expectations and we are hoping for a range of applications.
Please be aware that this is a commitment and we will be meeting twice a month from March - December. Meetings will take place on the first Monday of each month at the council chambers at 5:30pm and a fortnight after that via zoom at 7pm. A minimum level of participation will be discussed by the successful Council and adopted into a terms of reference once the Council has been elected. We will also expect involvement with the community initiatives mentioned above and additional events that may arise.
Once elected, members will have the right to remain on the Council for a term of two (2) years, however should members head out of the district, for university or another commitment, then a one year term is acceptable.
Please complete the required information below. Applications close on Friday 26 November.
If you have any questions please contact Councillor Heather Gee-Taylor.
