Notice of Postponed Election for Councillor on the East Ward

Please see the attached notice for the postponed election for a councillor on the east ward.

Further to the recent Notice of Vacancy published for the above Town Council, a valid request by ten local government electors to fill the casual vacancy via a by election have been received by the Returning Officer.

In response to the Covid-19 emergency, the UK government has passed The Local Government and Police and Crime Commissioner (Coronavirus) (Postponement of Elections and Referendums) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020 and the Coronavirus Act 2020, which postpones all polls up to 6 May 2021.

A date for a poll for the above election will therefore not be fixed until the public health situation has become clearer.

A revised Notice of Election detailing the election timetable will be published by the Returning Officer once a date for the Poll to take place has been fixed.
