Following the recent resignation of Bryan Whitton, a vacancy has been created on the Parish Council. Because no ‘election request’ was received by Electoral Services, the vacancy can be filled by co-option by the Council members. The co-option will take place at the Full Council meeting on 18th June. Anyone keen to become a member of the Parish Council should apply to the Parish Clerk in writing on or before Monday 8th June 2020.
In order to stand for this position, an applicant must not be debarred from standing as a Councillor, and they must meet at least one of the following criteria:
– The applicant’s name must appear on the current Register of Electors list;
– The applicant should during the whole of the twelve months preceding the relevant date have resided in or within three miles of the parish;
– The applicant’s only place of work during the whole of the twelve months preceding the relevant date is in the parish.
Public elections cannot be held at the present time but the present sitting Councillors may co-opt to fill the vacancy.
All applications to be considered for this role should be sent to:
Jackie Cottrell, Parish Clerk, 4 Kingsmarsh Cottages, Five Ashes, East Sussex, TN20 6JE
