Councillor vacancy


We would like another Councillor in Boxted.

When a vacancy arises then we have a formal election process to go through which we have done and we are now allowed appoint someone directly.

Have you got a desire to get involved? It will take a few hours each month and you don’t get paid. But full training is available and you will be shaping what we do in the village.

To apply please email boxtedparishcouncil@gmail.com by 31st August with a few paragraphs saying why you would like to be a Councillor. You will need to be available on Wednesday 14th September at 7.30pm for a Q&A with the current council. For more info please look at our website:

For further information on what’s going on with the National Grid Green Energy Project, please visit https://boxtedparishcouncil.org.uk/national-grid-green-energy-project/

A petition has been set up to ‘SAY NO TO 180km of Essex Suffolk Norfolk pylons’ and is asking the Government to look realistically to the green future and build a strategic offshore grid instead. You can find the petition at www.pylonseastanglia.co.uk or you can write to local MP Sir Bernard Jenkin – bernard.jenkin.mp@parliament.uk who is chair of OffSET (the Off-Shore Electricity Grid Task Force).
