Thinking of Standing for Council

Published: 09 October 2021


Bridgend County Borough Council is holding two Potential Candidate sessions aimed at those residents of Bridgend County Borough considering standing in the local government elections of May 2022.

Each Potential Candidate event will take place virtually via Teams beginning at 6.30pm on the 18th and 25th November, 2021 and lasting for approximately one hour. The sessions will be in two parts with the first part outlining information about the role of the Councillor and the functions of the Council, and the second part explaining how to become a candidate and the process for being elected.

The sessions are planned to provide information and not to be political, however they may be of interest to any Town/Community Councillors who are planning to stand at the election and who are not already a County Borough Councillor.

Anyone interested in attending one of these sessions therefore can e-mail: indicating which session they would prefer to attend, they will then be sent a joining link.
