Notice of Vacancy – 10 January 2020

Another vacancy has arisen on the parish council due to the resignation of Ben Pavord.

The process is that if 10 residents request an election by Thursday 30 January, then that is how the seat will be filled. If an election is not called then the Parish Council may fill this vacancy (and only this vacancy) by co-option.

As an election was called for the previous vacancies, that is how they must be filled.

Notice of Vacancy below.
