A strong and independent voice at Surrey County Council
If you care about local issues and you would like to change your community for the better, why not apply to become a local Residents’ Association County Councillor?
Surrey County Council provides services to almost 1.2 million people and we need local representatives who have a broad range of skills and life experience. to ensure that our community receives its fair share of the £1bn net revenue funding it spends annually to deliver vital services and resources.
Residents’ Association County Councillors at SCC are independent, but work together and currently form the largest opposition group on Surrey County Council. Together our Residents’ Association County Councillors ensure there is a local, strong, rational and independent voice at SCC in challenging the Council’s policies and proposals.
In October 2020 we will be selecting our candidates for the Surrey County Council (SCC) elections taking place in May 2021. Could you be one of them?
Whilst you do not need any special qualifications to be a councillor, the skills and knowledge gained through your professional, personal or community experience, along with your passion to make a difference will help you in your role.
Surrey County Councillors receive a basic annual allowance, and most meetings are held during the day. Your role within the council will determine how much time you spend on council duties.
If you are looking for a worthwhile and rewarding way to help your local neighbourhood, we would really like to hear from you. Please contact Fred Mowbray Chair Woodcote Residents Association by September 30th to find out more or go to:
