Parish Council Elections
Do you want to make a difference to your community and be a voice for the residents of Holmes Chapel?
Are you passionate about improving the lives of those living in the village? Why not become a Councillor and join Holmes Chapel Parish Council.
Councillors are people who give their time to serve others and get involved with issues concerning the village. As a local councillor you can become a voice for your community and make real change. Local councillor responsibilities fall into three main categories:
• Getting involved locally
Local councillors attend to local needs of residents, local groups and businesses, make decisions on local services, collaborate with district and borough councils to adhere to local needs, and progress vital projects to invest in the future of the community.
In the past Holmes Chapel Parish Council has partnered with the community to organise the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations, created a new play area, coordinated support for residents during the pandemic, initiated improvements at the Dane Meadow and purchased the Community Centre for local residents to enjoy, as well as advocating to Cheshire East about transport issues, housing concerns and much more. We are also a Quality Gold Council as accredited by the National Association of Local Councils! Why not get involved?
On 4th May 2023 there will be elections to elect the new Parish Council and you could stand and join the Parish Council!
