'Want To Become A Local Councillor?' Meeting

Home / Events / Meetings, quizzes and other / 'Want To Become A Local Councillor?' Meeting


Swale Borough Council is encouraging local people to think about whether they would like to apply to be a councillor in the local elections being held on Thursday 2nd May.

A councillor's role and responsibilities include: representing their ward, engaging with residents about issues that concern their area, decision-making, developing and reviewing council policy, scrutinising decisions taken by borough councillors, regulatory and statutory duties and community leadership and engagement.

The event will be informal, interactive and will give attendees a chance to speak directly to the Chief Executive Mark Radford about the role of councillors, to learn about how to apply to be a councillor, and to hear first-hand from a councillor about what it is like to be a councillor.

If you would like to attend the event, or want more information about becoming a councillor, please email:

Where: The Committee Room, Swale House, East Street, Sittingbourne ME10 3HT
When: 19:00
