The Council provides information on the process of electoral nominations, and publishes a list of nominations for the upcoming local election.
How do I become a Councillor?
Full elections are held in all wards every four years in May. You can be a candidate if you are over 21, on the electoral register, and have lived, worked or owned property in the area for at least the past 12 months.
You may be disqualified as a candidate if you work for The Council or hold a politically restricted post with another local authority. Bankruptcy or a previous criminal conviction with a three-month or more prison sentence would also disqualify you as a candidate.
Most candidates are nominated through a political party. However, individuals are welcome to stand in their own right. Before you can be accepted as a candidate you must get one person to agree to propose your nomination, another person to agree to second the proposal. Both of these people must be on the electoral register.
