- PARISH COUNCIL VACANCIES
The number of Councillors required to run the above Parish Council is seven.
At the present time the Parish Council has four Councillors with a vacancy for three more. Having only four Councillors makes it very difficult to vote on important Parish issues as a quorate of a minimum of three is required to vote.
If you have any interest in becoming a Parish Councillor please contact the Clerk by letter or email with your name, address and telephone number and a little bit about yourself and why you would like to be a Parish Councillor.
You do not have to live in Carlton Miniott to represent the Residents but you must live within a three mile radius, own property within the Parish or work in the Parish.
The Council meet every fourth Monday in the month at 7.30pm except for August and December. The venue is Carlton Lodge, Carlton Miniott.
