PSNC Briefing 010/21: Guidance on Delaying LPC Elections 2022

Published on: 27th May 2021 | Updated on: 10th June 2022

The term of office for LPC members expires on 31st March 2022 and for the LPC to continue, elections must be held to form a new committee to take effect from 1st April 2022.

LPCs may wish to delay the elections because of the timeline indicated by the Review Steering Group (RSG) about the programme to deliver the future vision of contractor representation and support. PSNC recently agreed to postpone PSNC elections, so that the current committee continues until 31st March 2023 and recommends to LPCs that they also delay elections using the same timing.

This guidance note explains the background to the decision and what LPCs need to do to operationalise a delay in LPC elections. It only applies to LPCs that have adopted the PSNC model LPC constitution and the dates only apply to those on a 4-yearly election timetable like PSNC. LPCs that follow this election cycle established new committees in April 2014 and 2018.
