Your chance to stand for the county council

Think you could do better in providing local services?…..well here’s your chance.

All six seats representing the Richmondshire District area on North Yorkshire County Council
are up for election on May 4 – and a special briefing session is being set up for election
agents and prospective candidates in March.

The county council is based in Northallerton and is responsible for some of the big spending local services such as education, social care and transports.

Local people are being urged to make a difference to the communities they live in and consider signing up as candidates for the May local elections.

The nearest councillors for this area at the moment are:

  • Helen Grant, Central Richmondshire division, NY Independent.
  • Carl Les, Catterick Bridge division, Conservative.
  • Stuart Parsons, Richmond division, NY Independent.

Anyone thinking of standing as a candidate – or acting as an agent – can attend to get more information on the process and what the role entails.

It takes place on Thursday, 2 March at 2pm at Mercury House, Station Road, Richmond.

Anyone wishing to attend should contact the Elections Team on 01748 901018 – and advise which County Division they are interested in as nomination packs will be distributed that day.
