If you want to stand for election to the City and or Parish Councils, now is the time to get your nomination in. Nominations must be submitted to the Elections Officer at the Gloucester City Council, North Warehouse, The Docks, Gloucester no later than 12 noon on 4th April.
You need just a proposer and seconder (from the Ward in which you wish to stand) for the Parish Council but ten for the City, because it is a much larger organisation.
There are two wards, Quedgeley Severnvale Ward, and Quedgeley Fieldcourt Ward. You can stand in either ward provided you meet the various criteria for nomination. These are available from the Parish office (Tel’ 721552) and/or the City Council (Tel’ 396203).
Quedgeley, Fieldcourt Ward has roughly 1½ times the number of electors of Severnvale, but still has the same number of Councillors.
Don’t delay get the forms now from the Elections Officer!
