Council candidates 2023

We are looking for dedicated, public spirited people who care about representing local people’s views and looking after the interests of their local area. Becoming a Councillor is an extremely rewarding experience, it gives you the opportunity to help your community and be part of a dedicated team.

In May 2023, we have elections to Melton Borough Council, Harborough District Council and Rutland County Council and are now looking for candidates who would like to join our friendly Conservative team.

We will be holding candidate information sessions, where you can find out more information about what being a Councillor means and the role and responsibilities you have, along with how our campaign will run in the lead up to these all important elections. If you would be interested in attending one of these sessions, no obligation sessions, please email  to register your interest. 

We will be joined by our Council Leaders and by a long-serving and newly elected Councillors to tell you about their experiences as a Councillor.

If you wish to stand as a Conservative candidate or if you know of someone who may be interested, please join us for our recruitment sessions to see if this might be an opportunity for you.
