Parish Councillor Vacancies

Vacancies occur from time to time, caused for example by the resignation of Parish Councillors. We currently have two such vacancies:

  • April/May 2024 – The notice below was published for the statutory period ending 14th May 2024 and did not result in a call for an election.
  • February 2024 – a similar notice was published for the statutory period ending 21st March 2024, and again there was no call for an election in that time.

We invite nominations to fill these vacancies by co-option.

In either case, please consider applying – you can find a brief overview of the role on our separate web page, Could YOU be a Parish Councillor? If you are interested, we will be delighted to have a chat with you, completely without any obligation, to answer any questions you may have.
