If you would like to stand for election, nomination papers can be obtained from the Parish Clerk after 5th March. Completed nomination papers must be with CWaC no later than 4.00pm on 3rd April. The Clerk has agreed to collect and submit all nomination papers that are delivered to him by 9.30am on 1st April. This procedure saves candidates time, avoids the need to visit a CWaC office in either Chester or Winsford, and allows time for any mistakes or omissions to be addressed. Any papers completed after 9.30am on 1st April should be delivered to CWaC by the candidate. Please note than an e-mail application is not acceptable to CWaC.
If you wish to stand you should first obtain your application form from the Parish Clerk Mike Hassall, Roy Cottage, Townfield Lane, Tarvin CH3 8EG. It is acceptable to e-mail the Clerk at email@example.com to request an application form providing that you include your postal address so that the Clerk can provide you with the paperwork. It is also acceptable to request the paperwork by phone but please note that the office is not manned day and night seven days a week.
