Town Council Elections May 2019

Interested in becoming a Reepham Town Councillor and putting your name forward for the elections in May?

Please see below a link to a set of Nomination Papers and a timetable for the Town Council elections which are being held on Thursday 2 May 2019.  The nomination papers have changed this year and include a home address form.  This is so candidates can request not to have their home address to be made public, if they choose. Comprehensive guidance for candidates can be found on the Electoral Commission website at:

https://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/i-am-a/candidate-or-agent/parish-and-community-council-elections-in-wales

Completed nomination papers must be hand delivered to Broadland District Council, Thorpe Lodge, 1 Yarmouth Road, Norwich, NR7 0DU, during normal office hours.  Nominations can be submitted from 20 March, 2019 but must be delivered by the deadline of 4 pm on Wednesday 3 APRIL, 2019, if they are to be valid.

Please note the following:

  • The proposer and seconder will need to be registered electors in Reepham.
  • The candidate’s consent to nomination must not be dated before 3 March 2019
  • The person witnessing the candidate’s home address form must also be the same person that signs the consent to nomination.
  • Forms 2 and 3 are only required if standing for a political party, so can be ignored by independent candidates.

 

 

Stimpson’s Piece Dog Restrictions

At the Trustee of Stimpson’s Piece meeting held on the 9th March 2016, the Trustees unanimously agreed that restrictions for dogs on Stimpson’s Piece should be reintroduced in light of the increasing amount of dog’s mess found on the field. I am disappointed to report that as at 1st February 2019, this continues to be an issue!

Whilst the Trustees recognise that the introduction of restrictions may impact on the pleasure and enjoyment of dog walkers at Stimpson’s Piece, these measures are necessary to ensure the health and safety of other users of the field. Your support would be much appreciated.

Signage has been installed to inform members of the public.

The restriction is as follows
