On the 2nd of March next, Stratford District Council will issue informative application packs for prospective candidates to stand for election on to the Beaudesert & Henley in Arden Joint Parish Council.
These will be handed to present JPC members, numbering nine, the full membership is for twelve members.
If the applications to join the JPC exceed twelve, an election will be called, and candidates will be given the opportunity to present their credentials to the community, who will then have the opportunity to cast their vote in favour of their chosen candidate at the elections to be held on Thursday the 4th of May.
The Town has a number of important issues in progress, the most prominent being the South Warwickshire Local Plan which sets out preliminary considerations for the planning and growth of settlements within this conurbation. If you have the desire to be part of the preparation and implementation of Henley’s own Neighbourhood Plan, now is your chance to take part as an active Councillor.
There are of course many other aspects of the future of Henley in terms of new infrastructure, which includes the adoption of an all-weather multi-sports pitch sited at one of two plots under scrutiny by the JPC at present, other considerations such as the return of Henley Market, permanent toilets at Riverlands, more help for local business and a growing need to observe and maintain the need for sustainable growth of the town and its green spaces.
Contact me if you wish to be registered as a candidate.
Many thanks, Ray Evans – Clerk to the JPC
