Be part of the future of Thurston.

Can you spare 4 hours a month? Do you want to affect real change and become a voice for your community?

Be part of the decision making, comment on local planning applications, help with community projects and ensure we make Thurston an even better place to live.

Councillors have 3 main areas of work: 

  • Decision making – by attending meetings and joining dedicated committees, decide which activities to support, where money should be spent, what services should be delivered and what policies should be implemented.

  • Monitoring – ensure all decisions lead to efficient and effective services.

  • Local representation – towards constituents and local organisations, such as attending meetings with bodies that affect the wider community – Police, Highways, Schools, District and County Council.
