Kingsley Parish Council takes its responsibilities as a local authority very seriously. Those responsibilities include ensuring that we comply with the legislation of the day which in turn includes that covering elections and eligibility for holding office. Councils and Council Members have no powers to remove a Councillor from Office.
In addition the Council embraces its duty to have regard to equality and diversity and would not see anyone unable to hold office due to any personal challenge they face. The Council has been, and will continue to be, open to working with any individual who has difficulty engaging in local democracy due to issues arising from any of the protected characteristics.
If you have suggestions or questions regarding this (or any other matter) please contact Kingsley Parish Council. We welcome your views.
