Borough election for Charlton Park ward

Published on 2nd June 2014


The election of a borough councillor for the Charlton Park ward will take place on Thursday 3 July 2014.

This was postponed following the sad death of a candidate who was standing in this ward in the 22 May elections.

The notice of election has been published so anyone wanting to stand for Charlton Park ward needs to submit a nomination paper by 4pm on 6 June 2014.

The three validly nominated candidates for the Charlton Park ward will not need to be re-nominated for the election. However, they have an opportunity to withdraw if they so wish. New nominations will be possible for this election and any unsuccessful candidates from the elections held on 22 May will be eligible for nomination.

To request a nomination pack, people can phone the council’s election team on 01242 264132 or call in to the Municipal Offices. Useful guides for candidates and agents can be found on the Electoral Commission website.

The names of those nominated will be published by 4pm on 9 June 2014 and may be available before.

For the official notice of election which includes the key dates and deadlines, visit the council’s website. For more information call the election team on 01242 264132.
