Publicity (Cornwall Live here) encouraging more candidates to stand for Penzance Town Council appears to be yielding results with healthy competition and a vote looking likely in most wards in Penzance with perhaps the exception of Gulval.

The Notice of Election will be formally issued on Monday 20th but candidate packs for Penzance Town Council candidates are already available from the Penzance Town Council Office. Candidate packs for Cornwall Council candidates are available from Cornwall Council officers in St Austel – address and contact details are the link here.
The ‘drop dead’ deadline for return of nomination papers is 4 April (4pm) at Cornwall Council offices in St Austel. As papers are inspected for errors which might take 24 hrs to rectify leaving the handing in of papers to 4 April is a risk.
To avoid a 90 mile round trip to St Austel, the practical deadline is 29 March (6 pm) at St John’s Hall. Papers (for councillor posts in the St Ives Constituency) can be accepted at St John’s Hall on 24th and 29th Mar (9am – 1 pm and 2pm – 6 pm). They can also be accepted on Sat 25 Mar 9am – 1 pm.
