Town and parish council elections 2019

The next town and parish election will take place on 2 May 2019. 

Voting

To vote in a town and parish election you must:

  • be registered to vote
  • be 18 or over on the day of the election (polling day)
  • be a British, Commonwealth or EU citizen
  • be resident at an address within the district
  • not be legally excluded from voting

Parish and town councillors

There are approximately 9,000 town or parish councils in England. These operate at a level below district councils and unitary authorities.

Because of their great diversity, parishes do not generally have statutory functions, although they are responsible for smaller local services such as allotments, parks, public clocks and community centres.

Most parishes are in rural areas, but if the parish is a town, it may call itself a town council, like Fleetwood Town Council.
