Loose Elections

Elections for Parish Councillors are held every four years. 

Aside from the election of a Borough Councillor to the Loose Ward, 2019 is also an election year for the parish council. Polling Day is Thursday 2 May, with the parish pavilion being the Polling station for the Loose Parish.

The parish council currently has nine Councillors. It should have thirteen. If enough people come forward wishing to become Councillors, then an election will be held, otherwise those who wish to stand, will be returned uncontested.
