Latest Town and Parish council vacancies will be listed below on this page when they arise.
A casual vacancy on a Town or Parish Council may arise for a number of reasons; a Councillor may have resigned, passed away, or have failed to attend any meetings for 6 months.
The vacancy occurs on the date of receipt of the resignation notice or the date of death, although the Public Notice may be delayed for a respectful period. Parish councillor resignations should be made in writing to the Chairman of the Parish Council and cannot be withdrawn.
The Notice published gives a period of 14 days for requests to be made for an election, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
If at the end of the 14 day period the Elections Team has not received 10 or more requests from electors for an election to be held, we will notify the Parish Council that they should proceed to fill the vacancy by co-option.
If an election is requested a poll cannot 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.
If you are interested in becoming a Parish or Town Councillor, please contact your local Parish council clerk.
