Become a candidate

We are actively seeking potential council candidates.  Being a local councillor is a great way to serve your community and campaign on local issues.  You don't have to be a "politician", but of course you do need to be supportive of the Conservative Party's policies and aims.  Interested?   The first step is to contact our office.  We will be happy to discuss what's involved and describe the straightforward selection process.  There are no set qualifications or experience you need to have, and the Party tries to select council candidates of all ages and from all backgrounds and walks of life.  Give it a go - you may be surprised!

The North Devon Conservative Association is keen to start looking now for District/Town and Parish councillors across the whole of North Devon. While we are delighted with the election of Peter Heaton-Jones MP and indeed taking control of the District Council but we cannot rest upon our laurels. We need grass roots councillors in Town and Parishes, as local accountability increases over the course of this Parliament these roles will become increasingly more important. Gaining experiance in these Councils will give you the experience to step up to District and then maybe Devon County Council.

Campaigning will be constant and consistant over the coming years and we will need your help. Get in touch. Get involved.
