Parish Council Elections

Elections for parish and town councillors in the District are being held on Thursday 2 May 2019.  All serving councillors must stand for election in May if they wish to continue to serve on the Parish Council.  This applies irrespective of when they joined the Council, even if they have only recently been elected or co-opted.     They are all required to comply fully with the requirements relating to nomination for election.    If fewer nominations than, or the same number as, there are members on the council or ward of the council, the persons nominated will be elected unopposed.    If there are more nominations than there are seats, a poll must be held.  For further information on standing for election as a parish councillor, please contact the parish clerk.
