Parish Council elections take place every 4 years. Ours are next due in May 2015.
Here's you chance to get involved, join a friendly crew and make your mark! Bressingham and Fersfield Parish Council has a complement of 9 Parish Councillors.
The Parish Council tries to keep a balance of members from both villages.
If more than 9 members of our community stand for the 9 Parish Councillor places, a poll must take place. No-one I have spoken to can remember this happening in our community, let us know if you do. 2015 could be the year!
If 9 members of the community or less stand for the 9 Parish Councillor places they are elected unopposed and there is no poll.
If fewer than 9 members stand, the Parish Council is required to appoint the remainder.
Parish Councillor vacancies that come up during the 4 year term are filled by appointment unless 10 residents request an election.
