Electors of North Wootton have the opportunity on 2nd May to elect their parish councillors and district councillor for the next four years or to stand as a parish or district councillor themselves. There are five seats on the parish council and one district councillor for the ward. The parish council election will be contested if there are more than five eligible candidates otherwise those standing will be elected unopposed.
Should you wish to stand for either, candidate packs are available from the District Council for both independent and party political candidates. The packs can be collected from the Council Offices, can be sent by post on request or can be downloaded from the Mendip District Council website. The website address can be found here
Nomination papers should be delivered by hand to the district council office; please do not post them. The first day that they can be accepted is 19 March, and there will be a specific office where they can be delivered. The last day for submission is 3rd April by 16.00 but it is recommended that you do not leave it this late in case of any errors on the form.
