This is who we are & what we do for you
Since 4th December 1894, Kegworth Parish Council has been a democratically elected body and comprises ten Councillors who are all volunteers. Elections take place every four years, but vacancies can arise in between. Generally speaking, these vacancies will be filled with volunteers being 'co-opted' on to the Council however, elections may well take place if enough electors make it known that they wish this to happen.
Meetings of the Parish Council are generally held every first Monday of the month at 1 London Road, Kegworth. (except where the first Monday is a Bank Holiday and then it is held on the second Monday of the month). The Annual Parish Meeting must be held between 1st March and 1st June and the Annual Meeting of the Parish Council has to be held in May each year when by law, the first order of business must be to elect a new Chairperson and Vice Chair.
"Kegworth Parish Council is elected by and exists for the benefit of Kegworth citizens. Its mission is to protect the interests of the residents of Kegworth and reflect and represent their wishes whilst striving to make Kegworth a more pleasant, healthier and safer Parish in which to live, work and play".
