Your chance to become a local councillor


hands With less than three months until the District and Town/Parish elections take place in Arun, the election count down has begun.

If you are interested in standing for election, nomination packs are now available and we would encourage you to ask for one sooner rather than later so that you are prepared and ready for when the Nomination Period begins on Tuesday 19 March 2019.

This is the time when individuals who wish to stand for election must submit their nomination papers to Arun District Council. The Nomination Period runs until 4pm on Wednesday 3 April when all forms must have been delivered by hand, addressed to the Returning Officer at Arun District Council, Civic Centre, Maltravers Road, Littlehampton, BN17 5LF

If you are interested in becoming councillor, it would be beneficial for you to attend one of the three candidates and agents briefings being held this month:

  • Tuesday, 26 February 2019 at 6pm, the Council Chamber, Arun Civic Centre, Littlehampton
  • Wednesday, 27 February 2019 at 4pm, the Mulberry Room, Bognor Regis Library, London Road, Bognor Regis
  • Wednesday, 27 February 2019 at 6pm, the Council Chamber, Bognor Regis Town Hall, Clarence Road, Bognor Regis


To request your nomination pack please contact or call 01903 737615 or 01903 737822.
