Swanton Morley Parish Councillors

Swanton Morley Parish Council is made up of nine Parish Councillors, who have been democratically elected (or subsequently co-opted) onto the Council to make policy decisions about the way the village is run and about how a proportion of your council tax (known as our precept) is spent.

They are usually elected for a term of four years but can also be co - opted if a vacancy arises mid-term or seats remain unfilled after an election. Councillors are elected to represent the views of the community and to consider the needs of the local environment. They are the first point of contact for anybody in the village with a community issue. 

Councillors must abide by a code of conduct and declare any pecuniary (financial) interest they have in the parish - this information is then held on a register by Breckland District Council.

To ensure full transparency of decisions, councillors have all declared what items they could be discussing in which they have a pecuniary (financial) interest.  The register of interests for each councillor,  is held by Breckland District Council.  Swanton Morley Parish Council has also adopted its own code of conduct, by which councillors must abide.
