Being a Councillor

Every four years an election is held when electors can stand for office. The election is arranged by Coventry City Council. The criteria for holding office is governed by the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972. If there are more prospective Councillors than places there is an election - in the same way as all elected representatives are selected. If there are 8 candidates or less than 8 candidates there is no election and all are automatically appointed. If during the course of a four-year cycle a Councillor leaves for whatever reason, a vacancy arises, a new Councillor can be co-opted and co-option is in accordance with the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972.

The following publications produced by the National Association of Local Councils provide further information about the role of local councillors and parish councils, and there is also a range of information on their website (www.nalc.gov.uk).
