Current casual vacancies on parish councils

A parish council vacancy may arise for a number of reasons, such as a councillor's resignation or extended non-attendance at meetings.

When a vacancy occurs, the parish clerk will notify us and arrange to advertise the vacancy for 14 working days. If no valid request for an election is made, the council can choose a councillor. This person must be:

  • A British, Commonwealth, Irish, or European Union citizen
  • At least 18 years old
  • Either on the list of electors for the parish, or during the whole of the previous twelve months has:
    • Occupied land in the parish as an owner or tenant
    • Had a principal place of work in the parish
    • Resided in, or within three miles, of the parish
