Notice of vacancy in the office of Parish Councillor

Following the resignation of Vickie Maris and subsequent notice, the District Council received a sufficient number of requests to call an election.

A poll cannot currently take place until 6 May 2021 as a result of the Local Government and Police and Crime Commissioner (Coronavirus) (Postponement of Elections and Referendums) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020 and the Coronavirus Act 2020. The Government has indicated that the situation will be kept under review and if safe to do so, further legislation will be laid that will permit casual vacancy elections and referendums to be held sooner than 6 May 2021. If this is the case a revised notice will be published.

At this stage, the election will be held on Thursday 6 May 2021 therefore no co-option can take place for this vacancy.
