Parish Councillor Vacancy

Parish Councillor Vacancy


A councillor vacancy has arisen following the resignation of Cllr Melvyn Goodway due to ill health.

Melvyn worked tirelessly and with admirable tenacity to secure funding from HS2 for speed mitigation and was instrumental in the implementation and successful ‘making’ of the Neighbourhood Plan in 2017.

We wish him a full and speedy recovery and look forward to his continued support in and around the village.

Further to our ‘Notice of Parish Vacancy’ that expired on the 19th April 2018 AVDC have confirmed to the Clerk they have received no request for an election and the Parish Council are now free to proceed to co-opt to fill the vacant position.

NOTICE is hereby given that pursuant to Rule 8 of the Local Elections (Parishes and Communities) Rule 2006 the council will fill the casual vacancy by co-option.

Written expressions of interest from persons wishing to serve as a councillor need to be submitted to the Clerk of the council within 21 days of the date of this notice (excluding Dies Non).

The closing date for the written submission of interest is noon on the 22nd May 2018 and following that date the council will fill the casual vacancy by co-option.
