There is a vacancy on Tring Town Council following the sad death of Councillor John Bowden. The Town Council wishes to fill the vacancy by co-option for the period until the next election in May 2023.
Being a Councillor is an opportunity to contribute to your community and help make Tring a better place to live, work and play.
Councillors have three main components to their work.
- Decision making – through attendance at meetings with other elected members, Councillors decide which activities to support, where the money should be spent and what policies should be implemented.
- Monitoring – Councillors ensure that their decisions lead to efficient and effective services by keeping an eye on how well things are working.
- Getting involved locally – as a local representative, Councillors have responsibilities towards residents and local organisations. These duties often depend on what a Councillor hopes to achieve and how much time they have available to commit to the Town Council. Councillors are expected to attend meetings of local organisations affecting the wider community and take up issues on behalf of the public.
