Are You Interested in Representing Whitton - Join the Team for 2018



The Twickenham Conservative Association is currently on the lookout for talented individuals with a desire to serve their local community. 

Across the Borough of Richmond upon Thames we are seeking to identify committed and passionate individuals with an interest in standing as a local Councillor.

If this is something that appeals to you and you believe you have the time and the capacity to make a real difference then please register your interest with David Jones, the Borough Campaign Agent.

Applicants will be expected to demonstrate a commitment to their local area and the Conservatives, complete an application form and attend an Approvals Committee before applying for seats in their preferred wards. Membership of the Conservative party is mandatory.

It is important that those wishing to nominate expect to meet the strict eligibility requirements before applying:
  • Be a British citizen, or qualifying Commonwealth citizen, or a citizen of the EU and resident in the UK.
  • Over 18 years old on the day on nomination.
  • On the Electoral Register for the Council Area in which you seek election.
  • Have lived or worked in the Council Area for at least the last 12 months.


Being a councillor gives individuals a genuine opportunity to make a difference in our community.  So if you are interested  why don’t you get in touch ASAP.  Applicants will receive lots of support from local MPs, Conservative Group colleagues and the Borough Campaigns Team.

Any further questions or to register an interest should be directed to the Agent on 020 8878 7866 or by email to agent@rpnk.co.uk.

Please Note: If you have previously registered an interest in standing as a Cllr through the Chairman or Deputy Chair Political of Twickenham Association there is no need to re-notify in response to this email as your details have already been passed across.  This email is a final call for anyone wishing to register an interest, but has not yet done so.   The Agent will promulgate details of the application process and timelines to all registered applicants and Branch Chairs later this week.
