Given that residents have not called for an election to fill the Town Council vacancy for the Lacey Green Ward, the Town Council will now directly appoint a Councillor by a process of Co-option.

All applicants will be invited to make a short presentation to Councillors on the evening of Monday 3 July and to answer any questions.

The process of Co-option will take place when the existing Councillors vote for their preferred candidate at the July Council Meeting (17th July)

All expressions of interest must be received by the Town Clerk no later than noon Wed 28 June 2017.

To be eligible you

must be either

  • be a UK or Commonwealth citizen

  • be at least 18 years old

  • during the previous 12 months have worked in the parish (as your principal or only place of work)


  • for the whole of the previous 12 months lived in the parish or within three miles of the parish boundary
