Town Clerk Ed Humphreys encourages people to stand for election…

“The elections are the ideal chance for members of the community who have constructive opinions and ideas about their community to stand up and work with others to try to put them into practice, and to make sure resources are available to do so.

Over the next 12 months the new Council will be able to conclude the work of the existing Council and set out its own plans for 5 years. There’s plenty of evidence in the Place Plan of what the community would like so the new Council – as elected representatives – will have plenty of scope and choices to make.

It’s easy to forget that a local council has a special combination of assets – it’s local, its elected from the general adult population, and is able to raise resources. Few others can make the same claim, and in that way the community can look to its own to shape its own future.

Remember there are professional, qualified, skilled and experienced staff here to help you be an effective councillor”.

The deadline for nomination papers to be delivered to the Returning Officer at County Hall is 4pm on 5th April
