Parish Council Elections of 2 May 2019

February 5th, 2019

Local Elections 2 May 2019

This year the Parish Council elections coincide with the District Council elections on 2 May 2019. So now is the time to consider taking an active part in local government and representing the views of all the residents in the parish. Would you like to make a difference to your local community? Walsingham is looking for potential new councillors.

The role is not onerous: the Parish Council meets eight times a year; councillors spend some time between meetings on parish council matters or particular projects depending on their involvement.

The Parish Council has an overall responsibility for the well-being of the local neighbourhood. The work falls into three main categories: representing the local community; delivering services to meet local needs (often in conjunction with the District and County Councils); and striving to improve the quality of life in the local area.

A wide range of training for councillors is available, covering role and responsibilities, law and procedures, planning, council finance, budget and precept, employment issues.

Make a difference and stand as a Parish Councillor

  • Get involved with your community
  • Have a say about the local issues
  • Influence the way local services are provided
  • Decide how local money is spent to improve your community.

If you wish to stand as a Parish Councillor you will need to complete a Nomination Paper (see information below) which must be hand delivered to the Returning Officer, Electoral Services, North Norfolk District Council, Holt Road, Cromer, Norfolk, NR27 9EN on any working day after the date of the Notice of Election (26 March) between the hours of 10am and 4pm but no later than 4pm on Wednesday 3 April.

The link below provides information regarding the qualifications for standing, candidate spending, the campaign, your right to attend key electoral events and what to do after the declaration of results. It is a very useful page and may help potential candidates decide if they want to stand and if they qualify to stand.

You will also need to print out and return an Expenses Form (Part 3) and send it to the District Council by 30 May even if it is a nil entry.

For more information, assistance or to book a slot for submitting your nomination papers contact the District Council Electoral Services on 01263 516010 or email emma.denny@north-norfolk.gov.uk
