Nominations for Parish Council election close 9 April

Nominations close on 9 April for the Slingsby, Fryton and South Holme Parish Council election which is due on Thursday 7 May 2015.  All the present Parish Councillors will be finishing their term of office on 7 May.

Anybody wishing to put their name forward as a Parish Councillor will need to be nominated.

Nomination papers are available from the Returning Officer at Ryedale House (Council Offices) in Malton and completed nomination papers must be returned by 9th April (no later than 4pm).

The current council has two vacancies for Slingsby, while the Fryton and South Holme positions are each currently filled. This means that if no more than 2 new people stand for the Slingsby seats, the election will be uncontested and there will be no poll. At present, it is not known if all the current councillors will be standing again.

If you want to know more about what the work involves, please phone any of your current Parish representatives or the parish clerk, who will be pleased to answer your queries. Contact details here:
