Parish Council Elections

If you would like to stand for election as a Parish Councillor for Beech in May you need to obtain a Nomination Pack from East Hampshire District Council’s Electoral Services on 01730 234370 or 01730 234093 or click here to download it from EHDC’s website.

There is a window of opportunity to submit your forms, after which you will not be able to stand.

For those standing in the parish and district elections forms can be received at the council offices at Penns Place, Petersfield, between 27 March and 4pm on 9 April.

Try to complete your nomination form as early as possible. Don’t wait to the last moment, as it won’t be possible to correct any errors and the nomination may not be accepted.

Please phone ahead and make an appointment to hand in your nomination forms in person. The process can take up to 30 minutes so an appointment will mean you won’t be delayed waiting for your turn.

Book your appointment by phoning 01730 234370.
