Elections 2017
6th March 2017

Nomination papers for both unitary and town/parish candidates are now available from the Elections Team at Shropshire Council.  Existing town and parish councillors should obtain their nomination pack from their council’s clerk from 6 March onwards, but all other candidates are invited to contact us by e-mail at or by phone on 0345 678 9015, to request a nomination pack. When requesting a pack, please let Shropshire Council know whether you wish to stand as a unitary candidate or a town/parish candidate (or both!), so that they can send you the correct paperwork.
