Casual vacancies and by-elections

When a councillor's seat becomes vacant the elections team will display a 'Notice of Vacancy' to advertise the vacancy.

The notice explains that an election can be called by a request made in writing to the Council's Proper Officer (the Returning Officer) by two electors from the local authority area. If an election is called it must be held within 35 days of the notice.

The exception to this is that if a vacancy occurs within six months of the date of the next scheduled elections, the vacancy is carried over to the next elections. The seat will remain vacant during that time and no by-election will be held.

The government has postponed all scheduled elections and any by-elections in the interim until 6 May 2021. A third of the seats on the Council will be up for election on 6 May 2021, and any casual vacancies arising before the Notice of Election.
