How to become a candidate in the upcoming Parish Council elections on Thursday 7th May 2020

The Ivers Parish Council is the first tier of local government closest to the community. With South Bucks District Council making way for the new unitary Buckinghamshire Authority now more than ever is the time for residents to come forward and stand for election. So, what does your Local Council do?


The Ivers Parish Council has an overall responsibility for the wellbeing of your local community. Our work falls into three main categories:


• Delivering services
• Improving quality of life for residents
• Giving communities a democratic voice


What does it take to become a Parish Councillor?


As a local councillor you can become a voice for our community and make a real change. Councillors are community leaders and represent the interests of the communities they serve.


Local councillors have three main responsibilities:


• Decision-making
• Monitoring
• Getting involved locally


How do I get elected?


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 Ivers Parish Council; or in the past 12 months occupied land or other premises in the area we serve (as owner or tenant); or work in the area (as your principal or only place of work); or live within three miles of the Ivers Parish Council boundary.
