Request for an election

The returning officer has notified today that they have received more than ten requests from local electors requesting that the casual vacancy in the West Ward be filled by election and therefore the vacancy cannot be filled by co-option.

Due to the provisions of the Coronavirus Act 2020 and The Local Government and Police and Crime Commissioner (Coronanvirus)(Postponement of Elections and Referendums)(England and Wales) Regulations 2020 a by election cannot currently take place either so the vacancy effectively remains until the scheduled elections due to take place on 6 May 2021.
