The number of valid nominations received for the election in connection with Reighton and Speeton Parish Council does not exceed the number of vacancies (and the Council meets its quorum) therefore the election will not go ahead.
All candidates who submitted a nomination form are elected uncontested.
Section 21(2)(a) of the Representation of the People Act 1985 states that if the number of newly elected members of the parish council constitutes a quorum (which is three members or one third, whichever is greater) these members may co-opt any person to fill the remaining vacancies.
Applications are invited from persons interested in being co-opted as a Member of the Council.
Letters of application should be forwarded to the Clerk of the Council on or before 7th May 2019
Please email the clerk expressing your interest & further information will be provided.
The written applications will be considered at the next Parish Council meeting to be held on Tuesday 21st May at 7pm.
Dated 12th April 2019.
