Parish Council Elections

Passionate about your local community? Want to make a difference? Then why not become a Parish Councillor!  Parish councils are led by democratically elected councillors from the local community. They decide what services and projects the council will deliver. As representatives of the first tier of local government and the closest to their communities, Parish councillors are best placed to engage with their residents and find out what the real local issues are. There are 20 councillors representing 4 wards in the Denby Dale Parish.  The Parish Council is encouraging residents who are passionate about their community to stand for election. Kirklees Council is responsible for the administration of the elections. Nomination packs can be obtained on the Kirklees website and must be returned by 4 pm on Wednesday 3rd April
