The Community Council has the same powers as a parish council. Parish Councils make all kinds of decisions on issues that affect the local community. Probably the most common issues that our Community Council get involved with are planning issues, fly tipping and cleaner/greener issues and crime prevention. Our Community Council is not political and is one of the only Parish Councils in the country that does not charge a precept.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE A PARISH COUNCILLOR AND HELP TO MAKE THE PARISH OF BRADFORD TRIDENT COMMUNITY COUNCIL A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE?
There are currently 5 vacancies on Bradford Trident Community Council because the term of office of the councillors has come to an end. These vacancies have been caused because of an insufficient number of people from the parish standing for election.
The council can now fill the vacancies by co-option, which is a process whereby the council considers applications from interested persons and can then select people to fill the seats.
If you are interested in becoming a parish councillor, please write to the parish council and include a few details of why you would like to become a councillor together with the skills and experience that you have for the role.
If you need any information about qualification for being a councillor or just want more information about the role, please contact Mohammed Rafiq, Clerk to the Council, preferably by e-mail at Bradford.firstname.lastname@example.org
Small Grants Funding 2023
The Community Council Small Grants Scheme are opened now so local groups can apply for funding up to £500 to run activities or events in the local area that bring community benefit.
Our priorities and focus for this round are on four themes. Your proposal should address as a minimum one of these;
- Older People
- Education and Young People
- New Communities
All applications will be shortlisted on their own merit and consideration will be given to the financial stability of the group and whether the organisation is sustainable without funding.
If you would like to apply for this grant please download the application form and guidance.
Should you have any queries about the process or if you would like an application pack please contact the clerk at email@example.com
