• Elections - Become a Councillor


Dartmouth Town Council currently has six Councillor vacancies, five in the Clifton Ward and one in the Townstal Ward.

Dartmouth Town Council is keen to encourage as many local residents as possible to consider standing as Town Councillors in the upcoming elections on Thursday 6th May 2021.

For the Council to fully represent the town, it should, as far as possible, speak for the interests and views of everyone who lives in the town, so Dartmouth Town Council is putting out a call for candidates.

This is a great opportunity to ensure the council is as inclusive and representative of this community as possible.

Dartmouth Town Council did host two Councillor Clinics on the 23rd and 24th March, if you missed these but want to ask any particular questions then please do get in touch with us via our contact us page.


The closing date to nominate yourself as a Councillor is 16:00 on Thursday 8th April 2021. Nominations are required to be hand-delivered to Follaton House and candidates are asked to telephone on 01803 861234 to make an appointment in order that social distancing can be maintained.

The forms to apply and important information are to the left of this post.
