Are you interested in representing your community? Why not consider becoming a Conservative candidate?

Are you a Conservative who wants to improve your local area? If so, you are an ideal candidate to become a Conservative councillor (Community, Town, or County).

Becoming a councillor is a uniquely rewarding experience. It gives you the opportunity to help your local community and be part of a dedicated team providing key services for your area.

Being a councillor is also a great way to gain political experience and useful skills in public speaking, debating and problem solving.

Serving councillors are a broad mix of people from the local community. New councillors are good news. They mean fresh ideas and fresh enthusiasm, and that will be good for your council and your local area.
