Co-option Vacancies

PARISH COUNCIL VACANCIES   

The Parish Council has 7 seats in 2 wards. Higher Ward has 3 seats and Lower Ward has 4 seats.

Following the Parish Council elections in May, there were 3 Parish Councillor vacancies on Lower Ward which covers Goosnargh Village which is currently being swamped by planning applications. At the October 2019 meeting Cllr John Worrall-McBride was co-opted on to the Council leaving 2 vacancies in Lower Ward.

The Parish Council needs to be at full strength to continue to challenge development in this area and comment on the proposed development at Whittingham Hospital and we are appealing for residents to come forward to represent the community on this and other Parish Council matters.

If you wish to be considered for co-option, please contact the Parish Clerk with your reasons for applying and any knowledge and skills you may bring to the role. 

Applications can be sent by email to wparishclerk@gmail.com

Mrs Julie Buttle

Clerk to Whittingham Parish Council,

16 Minster Park, Cottam, Preston PR4 0BY

or email wparishclerk@gmail.com
