A councillor is a member of the council and is normally elected for a term of four years. Next elections for all councillors are in 2019.

People of any political or religious persuasion are eligible to become a councillor, although their personal views should not extend into their parish council work. They are elected to represent the interests of the local community as a whole and promote a harmonious local environment.

The number of elected councillors depends on the size of the area. Cherry Burton Parish Council has 9 councillors none of which receive any pay or allowances.

Local councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact for anyone concerned with a community issue.
