What is a Councillor?
Councillors are the champions of the community and give residents a voice on the decisions Seaford Town Council makes. Becoming a Town Councillor will allow you to make a real difference in the Seaford community by:

  • engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs;
  • making decisions on which services and projects Seaford Town Council should take forward; and
  • getting involved locally to ensure the services are meeting your community’s needs.

How long does it take?
A recent national Local Councillor Census Survey found that councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for council work. This often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking on behalf of the council to outside bodies.

Can I stand?
There are only a few eligibility criteria to stand for election. You must:

  • Be a UK or Commonwealth citizen; or be a citizen of the Republic of Ireland; or be a citizen of another Member State of the European Union;
  • Be at least 18 years old;
  • Be an elector of the local council; or in the past 12 months occupied land or other premises in the area the local council serves (as owner or tenant); or work in the area local council serves (as your principal or only place of work); or live within three miles of the local council boundary.
