When you are ready to deliver your nomination to The Shirehall you will need to book a time slot for them to be checked. Staff will check your application when you hand it in to ensure that it is in order. If any changes need to be made to the papers you will need to be there to make the changes or will have to return at a later time with the corrected papers.
