Becoming a councillor


All Councillors are essentially volunteers from within your community and are elected by you.  The Council always encourages any interest from an eligible elector who is considering becoming a Councillor. Vacancies will be advertised on this website, on the public notice boards and in the Brading Centre. If you would like to get more involved in your community, and are considering becoming a councillor, then you can find out more about the difference that local councils and councillors make by downloading the guide below:
