What is a Community Council?
The Community Council is government at its most local level. Community Councillors are elected by local residents for a period of office which is normally four years. Elections for Community Councils are held in May at the same time as other local elections for County and/or Town Councillors and may also coincide with a general election. Co-options may be considered to fill vacancies which occur during the four year term.
