Farnham Town Council is inviting applications for the co-option of a new councillor for the Wrecclesham and Rowledge ward following the resignation of Councillor Edmonds. 

To apply, candidates will need to complete and submit an application form by Wednesday 30 November. Applicants will be invited to attend the Council meeting on Thursday 15 December where they will be asked to speak for three minutes to explain why they wish to be co-opted. This will be followed by an opportunity for councillors to ask questions.

After the presentations, councillors will vote for their preferred candidate. The successful candidate will become a councillor with immediate effect and will represent Wrecclesham and Rowledge ward until the local elections in May 2023.

Councillor Alan Earwaker, Mayor of Farnham says: “This vacancy offers a great opportunity for anybody who is interested in their local area and who would like to serve their local community. 

“Farnham Town Council has responsibility for allotments, cemeteries, several open spaces, Farnham in Bloom and a very busy events programme. You do not need previous experience as we have a comprehensive induction and training programme to ensure you are fully prepared for the role.”

Candidates do not have to be affiliated to a political party to apply. See full details including the criteria and application form.
