Delivery of nomination papers

The timeframe for candidates, or their agents, to submit nominations will open Monday 22 March at 10am with a deadline of 4pm on Thursday 8 April 2021.

Whilst all nomination papers must be submitted by hand, we suggest a copy of your nomination is emailed in the first instance to This will enable us to carry out an informal check before nominations are formally submitted. This will assist in reducing unnecessary time attending the council officers and will enable us to ensure COVID-19 safety.

In a further step to maintain your safety and that of our staff, we are requesting that an appointment is made to submit papers up until the deadline of Thursday 8 April 2021 at 4pm. This will enable us to remain COVID safe and also to assist with the provision of our resources at this busy time.

Please email us stating your preferred timeslot(s) and we will make arrangements for you.

Nomination papers should be brought to the Council Offices (CM9 5DL). However, please do not attend the main reception area of the offices due to the on-going NHS Vaccinations Centre that is operating from there. Alternative arrangements have been made to deliver papers to the side of the building near the Director’s car park, which will be provided to you on request of an appointment.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation at this challenging time. Please read our page with additional information for candidates and agents.
