Thinking about applying to be a Councillor?

Haringey Local Campaign Forum has re-opened applications for members wishing to be an approved Councillor candidate.

Deadline for applying is 5pm on Sunday 28th April

There may be no by-elections between now and the next Local Authority elections in 2022, but if there are we want to be ready with a panel of potential candidates that the local Labour Party branch can choose from.

If you are accepted onto the panel now, you will remain on the panel, if you wish, and assuming there are no material changes in circumstance, until 2022.

If you are considering applying, please read the following documents which will give you an idea of what is involved and what qualities, skills and knowledge Councillors require:
