Prospective Councillor 2018

Are you up for a challenge?

How well do you know your community?

Could you represent local people?

What can you bring to local democracy?

The next District Council elections will be held on 2 May 2019 and now is the time to discover whether you’ve got what it takes to be a district councillor. You don’t need to be a member of any political party – but you do need a genuine interest in what happens in the Dover District.  Councillors come from all walks of life, age groups and backgrounds, so don’t rule yourself out just because you think you don’t fit the councillor ‘mould’.

Read through the information below to find out more about the role of a Councillor and the work of Dover District Council.  

We will be holding an event on 8 November 2018 for anyone interested in finding out more about what is involved in being a district councillor. To register to attend the event and receive your information pack, please see the contact details below.

The Democratic Services team have prepared a number of documents for people considering standing as a district councillor that provide information on the role of a district councillor and how the district council works:
