LIGHTMOOR VILLAGE ESTATE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE ELECTIONS

Invitations sought for election nominations

Would you like to support Lightmoor Village community in ensuring views and decisions are made with their voice in mind? If so, we’re inviting you to stand for election on the Lightmoor Village Estate Management Committee, where you will be able to make a positive difference to your village and the services received from BVT.

The Committee has been reshaped to be resident led and to have greater oversight and authority of BVT’s estate and stewardship activities in Lightmoor Village in line with BVT policies (see terms of reference here http://bit.ly/BVTTOR).

To be eligible to put yourself forward for election, you will need;

  • To be 18 years old or above
  • Live in Lightmoor Village (one candidate per household)
  • To not be disqualified from acting as a member of the Committee which includes reasons such as bankruptcy or certain unspent criminal convictions (guidance will be included within the application pack).

If you wish to nominate yourself, you can simply complete this form http://bit.ly/BVTElections

With the form, you will need to submit a candidate profile of no more than 500 words and a photograph of yourself. Both of which will be reproduced and shared with residents as part of the voting process.

An independent assessment panel will check applicants meet the eligibility criteria before they are selected as candidates for election. The election process will be carried out independently by electoral reform service Civica ensuring a fair and transparent process.

All homeowners, tenants and leaseholders that live in Lightmoor Village will be invited to vote for their preferred candidates when voting opens from Monday 26 July until Friday 13 August.

You will be able to vote online or by completing a ballot paper which will be posted to you along with a brief overview of the process, nomination statements from candidates (including photographs) and a pre-paid envelope.

To ensure there is no disruption to the important role of the Committee, there will be a transition period with the current Committee members continuing until the election process is complete.

Joining the Committee really is a powerful opportunity to make a difference to your Village, community and the stewardship services that you receive from BVT.
