There were no nominations received from people wishing to stand as a Parish Councillor for the Claybrooke Parva Parish at the elections held earlier this month.

Harborough District Council is now re-running the election and is encouraging people to come forward and become councillors.

If insufficient nominations are received then the parish council will not be able to operate and will effectively cease to exist.

  • Principle, or only, place of work in the parish for the whole of the previous   12 months

The forms need to be delivered, by hand, by Thursday 23 May 2019 to the Returning Officer or his team at The Symington Building in Adam and Eve Street, Market Harborough, LE16 7AG.

If there are more candidates than seats (5) there will be an election, which would be held on 20 June 2019. If there is an equal amount or fewer candidates than seats then the candidates standing would be elected without contest.
