Casual Vacancy for Parish Councillor

Following the resignation of Neil Harrison a vacancy exists on the Parish Council for a Councillor to represent Wembdon, Wembdon Ward.

This is a voluntary position.  All Councillors must be eligible to be elected.  For full details regarding eligibility contact the Clerk on clerk@wembdonpc.org.

If ten electors submit written requests to the Sedgemoor District Council monitoring officer asking for an election to take place to fill this vacancy then a public election will be held.  These written requests must be received by the SDC monitoring officer by 30th September 2019.  In order for there to be a public election then there must be a minimum of two candidates standing.  If there is only one person standing then that person will be elected unopposed.

If there is a public election then all costs will be paid by the parishioners of Wembdon.

If ten such requests are not received by the monitoring officer by 30th September 2019 then the current Parish Councillors will co-opt to fill the vacancy.
