Darrington Parish Councillors
Darrington Parish Council has nine councillors. Councillors are normally elected for a term of four years – the last election was held on 5th May 2023 and is for a term of 4 years.
The next election will be held May 2027. Where a vacancy occurs for a councillor, it may be filled by either an Election or Co-option.
Elections only occur if, following the advertisement of the vacancy for 14 days, 10 Electors send a written request to the Returning Officer. If no request is received, the Parish Council will be required to fill the vacancy by Co-option.
Pursuant to section 27 of the Localism Act 2011, Darrington Parish Council (‘the Council’) has adopted a Code of Conduct to promote and maintain high standards of behaviour by its members and co-opted members whenever they conduct the business of the Council including the business of the office to which they were elected or appointed or when they claim to act or give the impression of acting as a representative of the Council.
This Code of Conduct is based on the principles of selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.
