Democracy Elections

Make a change – become a councillor

Local elections are coming up in May for Edenbridge Town Council and Sevenoaks District Council. Together with the National Association of Local Councils and the Local Government Association, we are calling on people from all backgrounds and experiences who reflect our community to put themselves forward for election. If you have innovative ideas for the council or have a specific issue in mind, becoming a local councillor will empower you to #MakeAChange
