I think it is good to have a mixture of current and new Councillors within a town/parish council at election time. I shall certainly vote for a mixture.

The lists on Cornwall Councils website for candidates for Parish and Town Councillors and Cornwall Councillors has additional information of address's which I think is good because I personally would prefer to vote for someone that actually lives in my Parish as opposed to someone that does not.

It's good to know they live in which ward. But I don't find the benefit of knowing their exact residential address.
