Every four years, parish council elections take place. 2019 is an election year.
Tankersley has 11 Parish Councillor positions. Four of the existing Councillors are planning to re-stand, meaning there are seven Councillor vacancies.
If there are up to and including 11 applications for Councillor, all who apply will be automatically elected.
If there are more than 11 applicants, a parish council election will be called, where local residents will vote, to choose their preferred candidates.
If you are interested in undertaking the role of Councillor for the next four years, please contact the Clerk, or Barnsley Councils Election Office, to find out more information and details of how you can apply.
