Elections - 2 May 2024

On Thursday 2 May 2024 elections for the Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner will take place. Also in Grantham, the first elections to the new Grantham Parish Council will be held, electing 22 councillors.

Grantham Parish Council election:

Following the completion of a Community Governance Review a new parish council has been created for Grantham. Although the new Council is named as a Parish Council, it is widely understood that the new Council would choose to call itself a Town Council and it would be for the new Parish Council to resolve to have the status of a town and adopt the name of Town Council.

The first elections of councillors to the Grantham Parish Council will take place on 2 May 2024.  The initial term of office will be 3 years. A total of 22 councillors will be elected, comprising 4 councillors for the St Vincent's ward and 3 councillors for all remaining wards.

The list of candidates nominated for the 7 parish wards can be viewed below on the Statement of Persons Nominated
