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:
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.
