Parish of Gotherington


that due to the non attendance of Lewis Harmer, a vacancy has arisen in the Office of Councillor for the Parish Council.

If by 2 October, 2020 (14 days excluding Dies Non, after the date of this notice) a request for an election to fill said vacancy is made in writing to the Returning Officer at the address below by TEN electors for the said Parish, an election will be held to fill the said vacancy, otherwise the vacancy will be filled by co-option.

If an election is called, by virtue of the Coronavirus Act 2020 and The Local Government and Police and Crime Commissioner (Coronavirus) (Postponement of Elections and Referendums) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020 the by-election will not currently take place, and the vacancy will be held open until the election takes place.  The 2020 regulations provide for the by-election to take place on the date of the ordinary election of councillors due to be held on Thursday 6 May 2021.  However, this date may be brought forward or deferred by the Government depending upon the circumstances.  Any election that is in due course called will be duly publicised as required by law.
