Must a Parish Councillor allow their name, address, telephone number and email address to be published?

0 votes
A new member of our Parish Council is reluctant to have their address and telephone number published on our Parish notice board and website. As Chairman of the Parish Council I am unhappy about this but not sure of the law in this case. Does anyone have any more information?

I am not sure of the law either but an integral part of being a councillor is to represent the electorate and by logical extension, they must be advised of who he is and how to contact him. I too would be unhappy if a member ofthe council of which I am Chairman wished this. Quite why anyone would wish to be a councillor on the one hand but anonymous on the other is not clear to me.

The legal dept at your principal council or NALC would know, I am sure.
