The Local (Parish and Town Council) Elections are taking place in May 2019. In order to help our member councils prepare for and handle the process effectively we will be running our popular Elections Workshop on 31st January 2019 from 10am to 12pm. The workshop is designed to prepare councillors and staff for the election process, explain the rules and answer questions about the election process. The workshop will cover a range of topics including:

  • Preparing for and promoting the elections
  • The use of public funds and purdah
  • The election process and timetable
  • Statutory notices and forms
  • Who can stand for election – the rules on qualification and disqualification
  • Is it desirable to have a contested election?
  • What happens after the election, once a result is declared?
  • Welcoming the new council – declarations and inductions
  • What to do if your council has insufficient candidates

£10 per delegate (member rate)
