Councillor vacancies

Current opportunities

A list of current councillor vacancies for the parish and town councils within the Wiltshire Council electoral area are detailed below.

If an election has been called for any of the vacancies listed below they will appear on the forthcoming elections page.

Elections and referendums (including neighbourhood plan referendums)

As legislation has now been published to confirm the postponement of national and local elections, by-elections and referendums during the coming months, We have released details of the forthcoming polls affected in the county which can be found on the news page.

Any town and parish council by-elections that have had to be postponed, have a vacancy that cannot currently be filled. In these areas, residents should contact their town or parish council directly to access the support they would usually receive from their parish councillor.
