Prospective Councillor 2019

Are you up for a challenge?

How well do you know your community?

Could you represent local people?

What can you bring to local democracy?

The next District Council elections will be held on 2 May 2019 and now is the time to discover whether you’ve got what it takes to be a district councillor.

In addition to this, the Council's Electoral Services team will be holding an event in March 2019 for people wanting to stand as a candidate for election in the May 2019 elections. For further details the Electoral Services team on 01304 872344 or by email at
