Thank you to those members and candidates who have taken part in our first round selection process.  All qualifying applications are currently being processed and will be brought to the next branch meeting for approval.


Applications are now being taken for the next round of the selection process for individuals wishing to stand in the 2020 local elections.  Any member who is on the branches' approved prospective candidate lists may apply.

Applications for the next round will close on Sunday 6th October 2019.

Any member wishing to be considered for inclusion on the approved prospective candidate lists for the Heywood and Middleton or Rochdale branches should contact their local branch for further details and arrange to complete and submit a prospective candidate application pack.  Further to receipt of your application pack, you may be invited to take part in a formal interview process.  The approval process exists to ensure the quality of each prospective candidate and their suitability to be a Conservative Council Candidate.  Not every applicant is successful on their first attempt, however, every applicant will receive feedback and may be advised of training and areas of development to be considered before a further application is submitted.  Applicants must be a current member of the party.
