Attached is the timetable of election events and highlighted below are events you need to be especially aware of:

31 March – last date for Notice of Election: South Northants Council (SNC) are planning to put their notice of election for the parishes up on 27 March.

Nomination forms cannot be received by SNC until the day after this date so by putting it up a little earlier, this means they can widen their window of acceptance.

Nominations can be delivered anytime weekdays between 10am and 4pm from 27 March to 8 April at The Forum.

The absolute deadline for the submission of nomination papers is 4pm on 8 April.

Nomination papers can be handed in by someone other than the candidate.

8 April at 4pm: this is the statutory deadline for when SNC can receive nomination papers.

SNC will be holding Candidate and Agents briefings before this date at three venues:

  • South Northamptonshire Council, The Forum, Moat Lane, Towcester NN12 6AD – Thursday 12 March at 6.30pm
  • Daventry District Council, Lodge Road, Daventry NN11 4FP – Monday 23 March at 5.30pm
  • Northampton Borough Council, The Guildhall, St Giles' Square, Northampton NN1 1DE – Wednesday 25 March at 5.30pm

Candidates can come along to any of these meetings and there will be nomination papers for candidates to take away. SNC suggest that prospective candidates come to these meetings as it is their own responsibility to complete and deliver their own nomination forms.

The forms, when completed, should be returned to South Northants Council only and not to any other council as our parish sits within South Northants area.

Candidates will need to make an appointment between 27 March and 8 April (weekdays only), between the hours of 10am and 4pm for an informal check.

Below is a link to the Electoral Commission's guidance for candidates standing at Parish Councils in England which should prove very useful to candidates.

It also has the nomination pack should you decide to start the process early.
