Be a Councillor

The role of District and Parish Councillors will be showcased for residents interested in standing as candidates in this year’s local elections, at an event hosted by Blaby District Council. 

The Prospective Councillor Event takes place on Tuesday 29 January from 6pm at the Council Offices on Desford Road, Narborough, LE19 2EP.

Councillors come from all walks of life, age groups and backgrounds, and play a key role in shaping the future of their local communities. The event will highlight the varied roles of a Councillor, with visitors able to ask questions.

Anyone with a genuine interest in what happens in Blaby District and who want to represent their local community are welcome to come along to find out more. There is no requirement to be a member of a political party to attend.

Local Elections for the 2019-2023 term on Thursday 02 May 2019 will elect both District and Parish Councillors. The event will also feature:

  • The key roles Councillors play
  • Support available from the Council, including allowances and training
  • Standing for election and nomination deadlines


Jane Toman, Returning Officer at Blaby District Council, said: “We are really keen to encourage anyone interested in representing their community to attend this event to find out more about becoming a Councillor.

“It is an excellent opportunity to see what it’s like to be involved in local democracy and how Councillors can make such a positive difference to community life. We look forward to welcoming everyone who is interested to the event.”
