New Parish Councillor brings team back up to nine

Profile picture

We are delighted to welcome Stephen Wagstaff to the Aldington & Bonnington Parish Council.  Stephen has lived in Postling Green at the end of Roman Road for 8 years.

It being mid term for the current electoral period, Stephen was co-opted onto the Council by the remaining 8 councillors. Co-option is a process whereby councillors select a person to join the parish council.

Residents elect 9 Parish Councillors every four years; 7 from the Parish of Aldington and 2 from the Parish of Bonnington. The Parish Council elects its Chairman each year at the Annual Parish Council Meeting which is held in May.

The Council reports to residents at the Annual Parish Meeting held in April.

Parish Councillors are holders of public office but are not paid for their services, they commit to three main responsibilities; decision-making, monitoring and getting involved locally.

The next elections are scheduled to take place in May 2023.
