There are expected to be vacancies on Acton Bridge Parish Council after its AGM on 29. April. More information about the role of Parish Councillors, the Election process, standing as a Candidate, and Parish Councils generally, can be found on a special new 2019 Election Page. You can also see a list of the 2019 Candidates there.

Most meetings are attended by one or more of our three Local Government Representatives from Cheshire West and Chester Council. Since May 2011 we have been in the "Weaver and Cuddington" Ward, which consists of four Parishes - Acton Bridge, Cuddington (which includes the community of Sandiway), Dutton, and Weaverham, though there are recent proposals to change this yet again. You can read more on our Boundary page.

Your Cheshire West and Chester Councillors (since the Local Elections on 2. May 2019 in the Weaver and Cuddington Ward) are as follows:-
Charles Fifield ; Gillian Edwards, and Paul Williams.

Your Member of Parliament is Mike Amesbury (Labour, Weaver Vale), who took the seat from Graham Evans at the General Election on 8. June 2017.
