Co-option Opportunity

Town Council Logo

Whitby Town Council has four vacancies, which it intends to fill by co-option.

The role of town councillor offers the chance to make a huge difference to the quality of life for people in Whitby. Being an effective councillor requires both commitment and hard work. Councillors have to balance the needs and interests of residents, of partner organisations, businesses, visitors and the council.

The councillors' role centres around community leadership and engagement; responsibilities include:

  • representing the ward for which they are elected
  • decision-making - developing and reviewing council policy
  • and statutory duties

You'll find more information on the attached Vacancy Notice and application form.

Applications are invited in advance of the February meeting of Full Council.
