A councillor is a member of the council and is normally elected for a term of four years. The next election for Ripley Town Councillors is in 2023. 
 
People of any political or religious persuasion are eligible to become a councillor, although their personal views should not extend into their parish council work. 
 
They are elected to represent the interests of the local community as a whole and promote a harmonious local environment. The number of elected councillors depends on the size of the area. Ripley Town Council has 21 seats. 
Local councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact for anyone concerned with a community issue. 
 
We are legally obliged to hold at least one meeting a year. Ripley Town Council hold 10 monthly meetings (no meeting in August or December). 
 
In addition to this, we hold Committee meetings. A list of our Committees can be found here. Members of the public are welome to attend all of our meetings. 
 
Being a Town Councillor can be an interesting and rewarding experience.
