VACANCY FOR A COUNCILLOR
Hornsea (South ) ward Council has a vacancy for a councillor
There is a vacancy on the above council caused by the resignation of Councillor Rob Andrew.
A bye-election to fill the vacancy will be held if 10 electors of the parish write to the chief executive of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council at County Hall, Beverley, East Yorkshire, HU17 9BA by 12 October 2020 claiming an election.
Where 10 valid requests for a by-election are received by the Proper Officer then under the provisions 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 by election takes place. The 2020 regulations provide for the by election to take place on the date for 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.
If the chief executive does not receive such a request the Parish Council will be informed that it may fill the vacancy by co-option, which means the council members will elect a new member from those who have expressed an interest in joining the council.
If you wish to discuss the role of town councillor, please contact the clerk of the town council
