NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN pursuant to Section 87(2) of the Local Government Act 1972 that Adrian Keward formerly a member of the above parish council, has resigned. A vacancy exists in the office of councillor for the said Parish Council.
Under normal circumstances, if within 14 working days from the date below, TEN electors from the parish gave notice in writing to the Returning Officer, a by-election to fill the vacancy would have been held.
At the present time, the Coronavirus Act and the 2020 Regulations have postponed elections, including casual vacancies. If an election is called, a poll cannot take place until 6 May 2021, (this is subject to any revised regulations that may allow the election to take place earlier).
If no such notice is given to the Returning Officer, the Parish Council will fill the seat by co-option.
