Most of the parish and town council seats are apolitical and councillors don't declare their political allegiance, but they are an excellent grounding for anyone wanting to serve their local community and can often be a springboard to District and County level elections.


Witney Town and Chipping Norton Town Councils are the exception where councillors represent political parties.  If you are interested in standing for any of seat in these town councils please conact us via elections@westoxon-greens.uk


We would encourage all Green Party Members and supporters to seriously consider whether they could contribute to their local town or parish council. 


With the potential prospect of a Unitary Council for Oxfordshire on the horizon, the experience from other parts of England is that Town and Parish Councils will become more important. 


If you would like to be considered to represent the Green Party at any level in any of these elections please contact elections@westoxon-greens.uk.
