The role of a Councillor

The role of a Councillor

Councillors can help our community to decide its own future and make Much Wenlock a better place in which to live and work.  They help to manage the council’s business, help improve the green spaces and facilities the community enjoys, and help to conserve the wonderful history of the town.  They actively help shape future service provision and other public services.

Other than meeting the requirements to be eligible to become a councillor you do not have to have any other qualifications.  All you need is to be passionate about making Much Wenlock a better place to live and work and strive towards that goal.  Whilst training is available it is not compulsory but is extremely beneficial.  The Town Council has a training budget and councillors are encouraged to attend appropriate training courses.  Councillors also benefit from the expertise of a fully qualified Town Clerk who offers advice and guidance.
