Council members are required by law to register any interest which is, or may appear to be, matierial to their council activities. This requirement is detailed, together with standards of conduct in the Parish Council Operations section.

Councillors are elected at a maximum of 5 yearly intervals. It is possible for vacancies to be filled by a new member being co-opted by a simple majority of councillor votes at a council meeting.

The last elections were held in May 2015, coinciding with the local council elections. Fewer candidates had registered than there were seats available for election, thus registered candidates were 'elected' by default. The remaining positions were filled by co-option after the election.
