  1. Do you want to make a difference in your community? If you would like to help make decisions about how local services are provided and help to improve the quality of life in Kent, why not become a councillor?

    KCC provides a wide range of services, such as Education, Social Services, Libraries, Highways, Street Lighting, Trading Standards and Waste Disposal.

    As a county councillor you will make key decisions on these services that touch the lives of everyone who lives and works in Kent.
    To encourage more people to consider becoming a councillor, KCC is organising an open day at County Hall in Maidstone on Saturday 18th October which will mark the end of Local Democracy Week.

    KCC Cabinet Member for Democratic Services Gary Cooke says
    Kent county councillors come from a variety of backgrounds. You don't have to have any specific academic qualifications or have a profession. You may have gained valuable skills and knowledge through working life, personal or community experiences.

    Anyone interested in finding out more can come along and find out from serving councillors what the role involves, be taken on a tour of Sessions House and take part in a question time session with political group representatives.

    The morning kicks off at 9.45am and ends with lunch at 12.15pm. If you would like to attend you can book a place by emailingPaul.wickenden@kent.gov.uk.
