Casual Vacancy on the Council

Would you like to be a Parish Councillor?

There are now two Casual Vacancies on the Council.  If no election is requested, the Parish Council will decide on who will fill the vacancy at the meeting on Wednesday 19th October.  The Parish Council would therefore like to hear from anyone who is interested in being a Parish Councillor.

You will join the team of twelve Councillors who represent the Parish and its three villages of Selborne, Oakhanger and Blackmoor.  You will be in position until the next election in May 2023 and are required to attend monthly meetings of the Council and follow the rules of the Council.  It is a very interesting and enjoyable, voluntary role and training is available in the planning and other aspects of being a Parish Councillor.

Please contact the Parish Clerk (tel. 07908 408 025 or email for more information and to check if you are eligible to stand (criteria include being over 18 and living in or within 3 miles of the Parish or working in the Parish for the last 12 months).

Also please read the two Casual Vacancy Notices attached below – election can be requested up until Thursday 15th September 2022
