Maulden Parish Council Election 2015

Maulden parish council seed of change

Parish Council Elections

Many of you will not think of your Parish Council from one month to the next, but they are incredibly important to the village and how it runs and how it will develop.

Please, if you are going to vote, vote for your parish councillors of choice this year in the Maulden Parish Council Election 2015. The more people who vote, the more credible the councillors are and the more incentive they have to really work hard for the whole community.

We believe that the questions you should ask of any candidate are these:

Will you help this village of Maulden to:

  1. Enhance the spirit of the Maulden Village community through everything you do
  2. Deliver positive growth and change to the benefit of everyone who lives in it?
  3. Create a vibrant local business community that benefits the residents as well as business owners?
  4. Enhance the environment of the village and the area around it in a sustainable manner?
  5. Consider ways to enhance heritage assets in a meaningful and sustainable manner?
  6. Work hard for improved communication and social cohesion?
  7. Support our youngest, oldest, poorest and most disadvantaged residents in meaningful and constructive ways?
  8. Consider the value of social events in public spaces for the whole village (like Christmas singing, Bonfire night, Summer BBQ, Village Fair)?
  9. Improve the safety and security of the whole village and everyone in it?
  10. Improve the physical infrastructure, and work with responsible bodies to do so?
  11. Encourage volunteering from others?
  12. Use all your powers to deliver those changes?

Those candidates who commit to, or have a clear desire to, support those 12 aims should get your vote in the Maulden Parish Council Election 2015, and your support in future.

It is worth finding out what they can do (officially) and who they are, so you can write to them or get to know them in and about the village.

For those with a deeper interest in good governance, you will want to know that your candidates are on top of the recommendations for councillors (Good Councillors Guide) and the latest thinking on Localism and empowerment of councils (Connecting Localism and Community Empowerment Full Report)
