Please ensure you print the pack in its entirety.
If you have already requested paper copies for your Parish, these have now been sent out to you by post.
Parish Clerks may give the Nomination Packs to any potential candidate or existing Parish Councillors who may wish to stand. Nomination papers are also available from the Elections Office at the address below.
Nominations can be handed in from Monday 20th March 2023 up until Tuesday 4th April 2023. The earlier the better, as it helps our elections office run smoothly.
Please note the Nomination Papers are required to be delivered by hand. This does not have to be the Candidate themselves but by someone they trust as when it is delivered we will be making an informal check and that person may be asked if they have authorisation to make the amendments on the Candidates behalf.
Please do not hesitate to email email@example.com or call 01271 388277 if you have any queries.
