Can you help?

Are you aged 18 or over? Lived or worked in Langley for over a year?
» Do you want to make a difference to our community?
» Then why not consider becoming a parish councillor…

There are currently 5 vacant seats on Langley Parish Council. We want to find active, enthusiastic, committed people to fill those vacancies and become part of the team.

What do parish councils do? As elected representatives of the community, the councils aim is for the people of Langley to enjoy the village and be able to utilise all the assets that we have.

In the past, this has included upgrading the children’s playground, installing and maintaining the fitness gym as well as looking after the village planters. We are also a statutory consultee on local planning applications as well as working with our neighbouring parish councils and Maidstone Borough Council and Kent County Council.

What’s the role of a councillor? We have 9 seats on the council, and members are supported by a part time Clerk.  The council aims to meet monthly on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at Langley Village Hall Committee Room at 7.45pm. evening of each, to consider items of business and make decisions for action.

Many councillors are also involved in other ways on a voluntary basis in their community. Whilst parish councillors are volunteers they may claim expenses as necessary and full training is available.

Could you be a councillor? We are seeking active and committed applicants; councillors need to be able to spend approx. 2-3 hours per month on parish council activities including meetings and getting involved with new projects around the village. Councillors also need to be IT literate and have facilities to access emails and documents sent via the internet.

For more information, please contact the Parish Clerk on 07944 668802 or via email at langleypc@hotmail.co.uk
