Newcastle Higher Community Council currently has a vacancy for a Councillor which will be filled through the process of co-option.
Co-opted Councillors have the same rights and responsibilities as those Councillors who obtain office through election.
The position of Community Councillor does not attract any salary remuneration. Councillors are expected to attend the monthly meetings of the Council and also to serve on a number of Committees which normally meet on a regular cycle. The role is varied and enables local people to use their skills and experience to enhance the work undertaken by the Council for the benefit of the community.
