Councillor Vacancies 
Liss Parish Council currently has two councillor vacancies.  Local councillors work on issues and make decisions that touch
the lives of everyone who visits, works or lives in the village. There’s no
type of person who’s best suited to be a councillor - it is important that
local councils represent the full range of local opinion. Please contact the Clerk if you wish to know more or would like to make an application.
