Parish and town council elections

There are 27 parish and town councils in Charnwood and 46 parish wards (some parishes have one ward, others have two).

In total there are seats for 266 parish or town councillors. Quite often in elections, parish and town council seats are uncontested and there is no voting as not enough people stand to contest the seats. However, there are usually some elections taking place across the borough.

Voting for parish and town councils will also take place on Thursday, May 2.
